THE COLORADO COLLEGE CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED PLACEMENT IN ART.
ARNEST, BERNARD; TRISSEL, JAMES N.
THE THREE-DAY CONFERENCE MET TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITY OF APPLYING THE CONCEPT OF ADVANCED PLACEMENT TO ART, AND TO CONSIDER SUCH TOPICS AS (1) THE NATURE OF SECONDARY SCHOOL ART PROGRAMS, (2) BASIC ART COURSES IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, (3) EXISTING CORRELATIONS BETWEEN SECONDARY SCHOOL AND COLLEGE ART HISTORY PROGRAMS, AND (4) EXISTING CORRELATIONS BETWEEN SECONDARY SCHOOL AND COLLEGE STUDIO ART PROGRAMS. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT (A) ART IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS IS TOO FREQUENTLY CONSIDERED A MANUAL ART AND THUS IS NOT GIVEN TO SUPERIOR STUDENTS, (B) ATTENTION MUST BE PAID TO THE DISRUPTIVE SPLIT WHICH OFTEN OCCURS AT THE UNIVERSITY LEVEL BETWEEN BASIC STUDIO PROGRAMS AND INTRODUCTION TO ART HISTORY COURSES, (C) THERE ARE ALMOST NO ART HISTORY PROGRAMS IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOL, A FACT WHICH COULD BE CHANGED BY ADVANCED PLACEMENT, AND (D) A CORRELATION COULD BE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN SECONDARY SCHOOL AND INTRODUCTORY COLLEGE STUDIO ART PROGRAMS. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT (1) APPROPRIATE ACTIVITIES BE PLANNED TO DEVELOP ADVANCED PLACEMENT COURSE DESCRIPTIONS AND EXAMINATIONS, (2) A NATIONAL ADVISORY COUNCIL BE FORMED FROM THE PARTICIPATING AGENCIES AND INSTITUTIONS, AND (3) MORE INFORMATION BE SECURED ABOUT SECONDARY SCHOOL, COLLEGE, AND UNIVERSITY FOUNDATION ART PROGRAMS.
