A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF GENERAL ART OFFERINGS IN UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN EXTENSION CENTERS, STATE UNIVERSITIES, AND VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS.
LEFFIN, WILLIAM J.
THE SCOPE AND EFFECT OF GENERAL ART OFFERINGS, DESIGNED FOR NONPROFESSIONAL STUDENTS OF ART, WERE STUDIED TO IDENTIFY CURRENT PRACTICES IN ART INSTRUCTION AS A PHASE OF LIBERAL EDUCATION. DATA WERE COLLECTED VIA SCHOOL BROCHURES, COURSE OUTLINES, AND ATTITUDE/OPINION POLLS AMONG DEPARTMENT HEADS, STAFF MEMBERS, AND STUDENTS AT INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS. USING THESE DATA, THE INVESTIGATOR CONDUCTED A COMPARATIVE SURVEY. THE RESULTS SHOWED MANY VARYING COURSE APPROACHES AMONG INSTITUTIONAL GROUPS AND EVEN WITHIN MANY OF THE INDIVIDUAL SCHOOLS, INDICATING A LACK OF COMMUNICATION AMONG SCHOOL FACULTIES AND AN APPARENT FACULTY UNAWARENESS OF THE AUDIENCE THE GENERAL ART COURSE IS TO SERVE. A FUTURE MEETING OF REPRESENTATIVE STAFF MEMBERS OF THE COOPERATING INSTITUTIONS WAS RECOMMENDED. THE MEETING'S PURPOSE WOULD BE TO DISCUSS CURRENT PROGRAMS IN GENERAL ART FOR THE CONTRIBUTIONS EACH INSTITUTION COULD MAKE, AND TO WORK TOWARD A SATISFACTORY DEFINITION OF WHAT CONSTITUTES A WELL-DESIGNED ART COURSE FOR THE GENERAL AUDIENCE.
