Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Div. of Program Development.
Learning activities and educational objectives are suggested for use by K-12 art teachers as they develop and implement art education programs. The major objectives of the guidelines are to help teachers direct learning in areas of aesthetic sensitivity, imagination, cultural understanding, and creative skills. Various sections present information on the roles of the student, teacher, art consultant, and administrator in an art program; design concepts; materials and processes; art facilities; program requirements; program evaluation; art terms; guidelines for instructional media; and learning activities. Emphases within the curriculum include drawing and painting, graphics, two- and three-dimensional construction, ceramics, string and fabric design, communication media, architecture, the environment, and displays. Elementary students are involved in playing games, drawing lines and shapes, learning colors, and observing color contrasts in nature and in art. On the junior and senior high levels, students are involved in printmaking, display and exhibit planning, viewing and criticizing slides, discussing topics such as self-expression and aesthetic growth, and experimenting with different media. Grade levels and objectives are indicated for each activity. (DB)
