ART IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. A MANUAL FOR TEACHERS.
RILEY, OLIVE L.; AND OTHERS
THE ART PROGRAM IS BASED ON FINDINGS THAT CHILDREN LEARN BEST BY EXPERIMENTING WITH MATERIALS AND GAIN THE CONFIDENCE TO THINK, FEEL, AND EXPRESS THEMSELVES WHEN THEY ARE GIVEN TIME TO WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE, WITHIN THEIR CURRENT DEVELOPMENTAL STAGE. SOME CHILDREN PASS RAPIDLY FROM STAGE TO STAGE WHILE OTHERS HAVE PERIODS OF LITTLE OR NO APPARENT PROGRESS. EACH ART ACTIVITY IS DESCRIBED IN TERMS OF THE STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT. STAGE ONE DOES NOT CORRESPOND TO GRADE ONE. SIMILARLY, A CHILD WHO IS IN AN ADVANCED STAGE IN ONE ART AREA MAY NOT BE EQUALLY ADVANCED IN ANOTHER. STAGE DESCRIPTIONS HIGHLIGHT SPECIFIC ADVANCES IN ABILITY AND ARE PRESENTED IN TERMS OF WHAT THE CHILD DOES. HIS LEARNINGS AND ACTIVITIES AT EACH LEVEL ARE CUMULATIVE AND REPRESENT COMBINED EMOTIONAL, MENTAL, MANUAL, AND AESTHETIC GROWTH. ACTIVITIES ARE PRESENTED IN TERMS OF--MATERIALS AND THEIR USES, CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT, TEACHING PROCEDURES, AND SUGGESTED EXPERIENCES. PHOTOGRAPHS AND CHILDRENS' ART WORKS AUGMENT THE PRESENTATION OF THESE IDEAS AND METHODS.
