The document is designed for the Alabama special education teacher who desires to provide an art program for the educable and trainable mentally retarded student. The manual offers information to local school systems on initiating, organizing, and expanding services in this area. Hints are presented about organizing the classroom, art supplies, scrap materials, sources of ideas for creative expression, and combining colors. Twelve pages are devoted to lesson plans in the following art activities: cutting, tearing, and pasting (for example, silhouettes and collage); drawing and painting using pencils, crayons, chalks, and paint; printing processes; crafts (for example, puppets, paper mache, and masks); and other media activities (for example, booklets and seasonal activities). Materials, procedures, and suggested lesson subjects are outlined for each activity. (Author/SBH)
