HELWIG, G. ALFRED.; AND OTHERS
AN ALTERNATE, SECOND-YEAR ELECTIVE ART COURSE IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL FOLLOWS A PREREQUISITE 10TH GRADE COURSE, FUNDAMENTALS OF ART. GENERAL AIMS ARE--TO STIMULATE THE STUDENT'S SENSITIVITY TO AND APPRECIATION OF ART, TO INCREASE ENJOYMENT OF CREATIVE EXPRESSION, TO TEACH THE FUNDAMENTALS AND TECHNIQUES HELPFUL IN SOLVING ART PROBLEMS, TO OFFER A BASIS FOR EVALUATION OF ART QUALITIES AND PRODUCTS, TO HELP THE STUDENT DEVELOP VOCATIONAL INSIGHTS, AND TO DEVELOP AN ACTIVE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ART AND CONTEMPORARY LIVING. MORE SPECIFICALLY, THIS COURSE IS DESIGNED TO HELP THE STUDENT REALIZE THE DEVELOPMENT OF PAINTING, PRINT MAKING, AND SCULPTURE IN TERMS OF PERSONAL SKILLS AND OF APPRECIATION. UNITS OUTLINED ARE--PICTORIAL COMPOSITION, PAINTING STILL LIFE, PEOPLE, COLLAGE, MODELING AND CASTING, PRINT MAKING, CARVING, CONSTRUCTION, AND LANDSCAPE PAINTING. EACH STUDY GUIDE CONSISTS OF SEVERAL SUGGESTED APPROACHES, A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDED ACTIVITIES, AND A CRITIQUE FOR EVALUATING EFFECTIVENESS. BECAUSE ART ACTIVITIES HAVE COMPLEX AND SUBTLE HUMAN BEHAVIOR RELATIONSHIPS THAT DEMAND GREAT UNDERSTANDING, PARTICULAR ATTENTION IS GIVEN TO THE AREA OF EVALUATION. IN ADDITION TO A CRITIQUE WITH EACH UNIT, A GUIDE FOR TEACHER AND STUDENT EVALUATION IS INCLUDED IN THE INTRODUCTORY SECTION.
