ART FOR THE ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENT.
ZIEGFELD, EDWIN
THE NATURE OF ART AND A DISCUSSION OF THE IMPORTANCE OF INCLUDING ART EXPERIENCES IN THE SCHOOL PROGRAM ARE PRESENTED. THE REPORT ALSO INCLUDES DESCRIPTIONS OF PROGRAMS THAT ARE IN OPERATION IN VARIOUS SCHOOL SYSTEMS TO ILLUSTRATE SOME OF THE POSSIBILITIES INHERENT IN THE GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS. THE STUDY OF ART GIVES THE GIFTED STUDENT'S EDUCATION AN AESTHETIC-EMOTIONAL-EXPRESSIONAL BASE IN ADDITION TO THE INTELLECTUAL BASIS FOR HIS GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT A 1-YEAR PROGRAM IN ART BE REQUIRED OF ALL ACADEMICALLY TALENTED STUDENTS. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE TO GUIDE IN FORMING THE CONTENT AND METHOD OF THE ART PROGRAM. AMONG THESE ARE--CREATIVITY, BROAD PHILOSOPHIC PROBLEMS, SENSITIVITY, TECHNIQUES, AND APPROACH. ADVANCED COURSES ARE SUGGESTED FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL ABILITIES IN ART. THERE ARE MANY RESOURCES THAT CAN BE USED TO IMPROVE THE BASIC PROGRAM. THE ADMINISTRATOR CAN BE OF GREAT ASSISTANCE BY AIDING IN THE IDENTIFICATION AND GUIDANCE OF THE TALENTED, PROPERLY STAFFING AND EQUIPPING THE ART PROGRAM, PROVIDING FLEXIBLE AND HELPFUL SCHEDULING FOR CLASSES NOT EXCEEDING 25, AND PROVIDING WHATEVER ASSISTANCE IS NEEDED TO MAKE THE PROGRAM EFFECTIVE. THREE SCHOOL SYSTEMS HAVE SHOWN THAT A PROGRAM RELATING THE FOUR ARTS CAN BE EFFECTIVELY SCHEDULED AND PROVIDED ON A LIMITED BUDGET.
