Abstract: This thesis is the culmination of a research-creation in visual arts that employs an autoethnographic method of examination and analysis. My goal with this project isto determine which knowledge derived from artistic creation is transferable to arts education. By studying my own research-creation, I emphasize the dialogue of creation (Buber, 1923/2012) and how the position of the public amateur(Pentecost, 2007) can be embodied in the creative process. I demonstrate how the creative process and the reflexive practice (Schön, 1982) of an artist-teacher cannourrish the artist-teacher’s engagement with guided pedagogy (accompagnement pédagogique). Using an auto-ethnographic method (Chang, 2008; Ellis, 2004,2009; Ellis & Bochner, 2011; Reed-Danahay, 1997), I explore how the links between artistic practice and visual arts education approach radical constructive epistemology (Glasersfeld, 1981/1988, 1988) where bricolage construction is foregrounded.This research is carried out in two ways. First, by the realization of an artistic project, and second, by observing and analyzing the process and results of the project from an autoethnographic perspective.The creative project, Bluetooth, is composed of ceramic pieces and digital prints inspired by an investigation to see where my personal history crosses with historical facts. The end result is a fantasized and unlikely hagiography in which blue teeth, as well as the Viking Harald Bluetooth and Brother Marie-Victorin find themselves front and center, intersecting with the dialogue of creation and the concept of public amateur.The thesis is written as art practice narrative (Paquin, 2014), an autobiographical account written in first person from which I am able to draw out new knowledge.The first objective in high lighting this knowledge is to bring out the Buberian dialogue present in the experience of creation and to provide a model of my creative process. The second objective is to draw out principles from this experience of personal creation and to establish how they are transferred into the guided pedagogy that I engage in as an arts educator with my university students. Key words: guided pedagogy, public amateur, dialogue, reflexive practice, creative process
