PAGE, RAY
THIS BULLETIN IS A GUIDE FOR THE CREATION OR IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ART CURRICULUM FOR THE SCHOOL. BECAUSE OF THE RECOGNIZED VARIETY OF TALENTS AND INTERESTS IN ANY ONE CLASSROOM OR GRADE, THE IDEAS AND PROCEDURES PRESENTED IN THE BULLETIN ARE NOT MEANT TO FOLLOW ANY AGE-GRADE ORGANIZATION. INSTEAD, THE TEACHER IS URGED TO PERUSE THE ENTIRE GUIDE AND USE THE SUGGESTIONS TO HIS OR HER PARTICULAR ADVANTAGE. TO EFFECT AN IMAGINATIVE, MOTIVATIVE, ART PROGRAM, THE SCHOOL ADMINISTRATOR CAN FULFILL HIS ROLE BY HIRING CAPABLE TEACHERS AND BY SUPPORTING THEIR REQUESTS FOR FACILITIES AND MATERIALS. THE TEACHER MUST BE KEENLY INTERESTED IN ART EDUCATION AND CONSTANTLY SEARCHING FOR CREATIVE NEW WAYS TO INVOLVE HER PUPILS IN ARTISTIC EXPRESSION. NOT ALL CHILDREN CAN DRAW A HORSE WELL, BUT THEY ALL HAVE SOME URGE TO CREATIVITY THAT CAN BE TAPPED IN VARIOUS WAYS. THIS BULLETIN ENUMERATES AND ILLUSTRATES THE MANY WAYS TO MANIPULATE AND EXPERIMENT WITH MATERIALS AND IDEAS IN ORDER TO EXPLORE AND DISCOVER THE ALMOST INFINITE VISUAL AND TACTILE FORMS AND FEELINGS THAT EXIST IN THE WORLD OF ARTISTIC EXPRESSION AND CREATIVITY. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE CHILD BE INTRODUCED TO AS MANY OF THESE FORMS, IDEAS, AND STIMULI AS POSSIBLE, FOR THE CREATIVE PROCESS IS NOT JUST A MEANS OF PERSONAL ENJOYMENT FOR THE INDIVIDUAL PUPIL, IT IS AN EXERCISE IN DISCOVERY AND UNDERSTANDING OF HIMSELF AND OF THE WORLD ABOUT HIM. THIS DOCUMENT IS AVAILABLE FROM THE ILLINOIS CURRICULUM PROGRAM, OFFICE OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION, SPRINGFIELD, ILLINOIS, AS BULLETIN NO. C-FOUR OF THE SUBJECT FIELD SERIES. (WD)
