Visual art in grades K-12 and in special education classrooms is covered in this Alabama course of study. Containing six sections, the first section of this study is an introduction that presents a rationale for art in the school curriculum; discusses characteristics of a good school art program; and provides information about time and scheduling required and space, facilities, equipment, and materials needed for an art program. The administration of the program is discussed as are specific goals for students involved in the program. The goals of this program are for students to make works of art; acquire a knowledge of the visual art heritage and cultural influences; analyze, value, and judge works of art; and respond to the aesthetic qualities of the natural and manmade environment. Section two lists 13 art requirements for students in grades K-4 and section three lists 10 art requirements for students in grades 5-8. Both of these sections also list suggested art-related activities. Section four lists three art requirements for students in grades 9-12. The content for both a general art program and for a specialized art program is provided for this level. Visual art for special education is briefly discussed in section five.
