Giftedness has always been difficult to define. This is especially true for art giftedness, as cultural and societal values and art education have shaped what is valued within art classrooms. In Singapore, education has focused on developing critical and creative thinking skills among the students, and it does not come as a surprise to find art teachers highlighting students with exceptional thinking skills as gifted art students. However, this will not be the same for all countries. In this presentation, I compare objectives and standards used in Singapore and the United States in art education and discuss the implications concerning teachers’ perception of art giftedness among their students.
