TOTAL ART IN THE TOTAL SCHOOL.
OLDS, JACK E.
A MORE STIMULATING ENVIRONMENT COULD BE PROVIDED IN MANY IOWA SCHOOLS IF EACH SCHOOL'S ART DEPARTMENT WOULD TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND PROVIDE THE NECESSARY LEADERSHIP FOR INTERNAL FACELIFTING PROJECTS. HOWEVER, IN SMALL RURAL SCHOOLS, WHERE SPECIAL ART TEACHERS ARE NOT AVAILABLE, THE CLASSROOM TEACHERS MUST FILL THIS VOID BY BEING CREATIVE AND IMAGINATIVE THEMSELVES. SOME SCHOOLS ARE USING REPRODUCTIONS OF THE CLASSIC WORKS OF ART FOR CREATING A BETTER VISUAL CLIMATE. GOOD ART DISPLAY AREAS INCLUDE HALLWAYS, AUDITORIUMS, CAFETERIAS, AND LIBRARIES. IF STUDENTS BECAME MORE AWARE OF THEIR TOTAL ENVIRONMENT BECAUSE IT WAS LIVELY AND REWARDING, PERHAPS THEY WOULD FEEL THE NEED TO BEAUTIFY THEIR COMMUNITY ENVIRONMENT. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN "MIDLAND SCHOOLS," NOVEMBER-DECEMBER 1967, PP. 18-19, 22. (ES)
