Guidelines are offered for implementing an art education program fostering art knowledge, art appreciation, and personal creativity. Six chapters cover goals, content, curriculum planning, resources, evaluation and administration. Chapter 1 identifies 5 objectives of art education--perceptual awareness, values development, creative development, knowledge, and development of personal judgment. Charts tag each objective to specific skills, concepts, and grade levels. Chapter 2 focuses on 5 content areas for teaching art. Subject, theme, products, media, function, and design are coded in charts to specific objectives and activities. In Chapter 3, exemplary units are provided for early childhood, middle grades, and secondary levels. The early childhood unit on animals offers lessons such as looking at pets, 3-dimensional animals, and children as art critics. "Feelings in Art," the middle grade unit, includes lessons on sketching faces, human form, and portraits and landscapes. The secondary level unit treats expressions of social concerns through art. Chapter 4 provides lists of resources. Strategies for evaluating lessons and student work are discussed in chapter 5. The final chapter details implementation concerns, including personnel, scheduling, financing, and facilities. Appendices outline steps for developing a visual arts curriculum, career resources, and relevant organizations. (LP)
