Visual Arts for Emotionally Handicapped Early Adolescents Theory and Resultant Guidelines.
Shields, Roscoe, Jr.
The paper discusses the theory and implementation guidelines of a visual arts curriculum for emotionally handicapped adolescents. The author stresses the importance of expressive arts and of identification with the art experience, and suggests that a curriculum should start with themes, experiences, and ideas worth communicating. Expressive artists and emotionally disturbed children are seen to share such characteristics as excessive motor activity, day dreaming, fantasizing, and impulsiveness. (CL)
