Kendall Crabbe’s teaching philosophy is learner-centered, with a focus on the practical application of theory within the field of art and visual culture education. She employs participatory pedagogies in graduate, undergraduate, K-12, museum, and community-based contexts. In 2012, Crabbe’s research interests grew from her teaching practice within youth programs in art museums. Employing a critical theoretical framework, Kendall’s scholarship focuses on youth participatory action research (YPAR) in the arts. Current projects include longitudinal research to center youth experiences, stories, and perspectives in co-created programs. Ultimately, her research seeks to complexify our understanding of how young people create authentic and empowering spaces of participation through unique forms of creative resistance. Kendall engages social and cultural theories of critical race, arts equity, and feminist perspectives, as well as qualitative inquiry in her teaching, research, and scholarship.
