In an attempt to bring art instruction into small schools financially unable to support such a program, 11 high schools in 4 western states have been receiving simultaneous instruction in art from a central source with the aid of an amplified telephone and coordinated overhead transparencies. Before the onset of classes, the instructor visits each school in order to get acquainted with his students. Students in the art classes are supervised by local, interested teachers, and the art work is mailed back and forth to the art instructor. Each school is linked to every other school and to the instructor by means of a regular conference call placed through the telephone company. Each student is thus able to hear the instructor, view projected transparencies, and respond or question as the need arises. Results of the experiment show that this technique is highly effective in communicating basic art skills to those students in schools whose curricula contain no offering in the art area. (DA)
