NEW ORLEANS SERVES UP FINE ARTS TO FEED YOUNG EGOS.
GORMIN, PATRICIA
THE EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT PROJECT IS CONDUCTING A FINE ARTS PROGRAM FOR DISADVANTAGED PUPILS AT TWO PREDOMINANTLY NEGRO NEW ORLEANS ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. THE PROGRAM HAS A TWO-FOLD GOAL--TO FOSTER CREATIVITY IN THE PUPILS AND TO DEVELOP TEACHERS' AWARENESS OF STUDENT ADJUSTMENT AND LEARNING PROBLEMS. INCLUDED IN THE PROJECT ARE MUSIC EDUCATION AND ART AND THEATER EXPERIENCES. AN "ALLIED COMMUNICATION ARTS PROCESS" IS USED TO INTERRELATE THESE ACTIVITIES WITH THE LANGUAGE ARTS. CONSULTANTS IN THE ARTS FROM TWO LOCAL UNIVERSITIES HELP TEACHERS TO DEVELOP EXPERIMENTAL TEACHING TECHNIQUES.
