EFFECTS OF TWO PROGRAMS AND TWO METHODS OF TEACHING UPON THE QUALITY OF ART PRODUCTS OF ADOLESCENTS.
FRANKSTON, LEON
THE QUALITY OF ART PRODUCTS OF STUDENTS WERE MEASURED TO COMPARE (1) THE EFFECT OF AN ART PROGRAM PRESCRIBED TO A TEACHER VERSUS AN ART PROGRAM SELF-DEVELOPED BY A TEACHER AND (2) THE EFFECT OF TWO METHODS OF TEACHING, ONE SPONTANEOUS AND THE OTHER DIVERGENT. SPONTANEOUS ART STRATEGY WAS DEFINED AS BEGINNING WITH A BIG ORGANIC STATEMENT DEVOID OF DETAIL BUT SUGGESTIVE OF A WHOLE PICTURE. THROUGH PROGRESSIVE MEDIUM INTERACTION, CENTRALIZATION, MOVEMENT, INCORPORATION OF PROCESS-INSPIRED ACCIDENTS, AND SUGGESTION, STUDENTS USING THE SPONTANEOUS STRATEGY FOCUS ON THE WHOLE PROBLEM AS THEY FEEL IT AND TRY TO SOLVE IT THROUGH PROCEDURAL EXPERIMENTATION. DIVERGENT ART STRATEGY WAS DEFINED AS TYPICALLY BEGINNING BY DRAWING WITH FINE LINE CONTROL A SINGLE ELEMENT WHICH INCLUDES RELATIVELY PRECISE DETAIL. AS NEW ELEMENTS ARE ADDED, AN ALTERATION OF VIEWPOINT AND SHIFTING OF FOCUS IS LIKELY TO OCCUR. APPROXIMATELY 60 STUDENTS RANGING IN AGE FROM 13 TO 17 PARTICIPATED IN 4 CLASSES. ART PRODUCTS WERE JUDGED FOR ORIGINAL-AESTHETIC QUALITY, THAT IS, THE UNCOMMONNESS OF RESPONSE AND PLEASING QUALITIES. CORRELATION ANALYSIS OF PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS PRODUCED LIMITED POSITIVE FINDINGS. (JM)
