Using the resources in this curriculum guide, teachers will be able to develop highly individualized programs of studio experiences that will meet the needs of interested students at all levels of secondary education. The guide suggests that students have direct contact with the various forms, dimensions, and media of the visual and plastic arts. It presupposes the availability of a studio, ready access to genuine works of art through galleries, museums, and institutes, and, if possible, contact with local artists and/or artists-in-residence. The bulk of the guide examines the elements of art, which are defined as space, light, color, form (shape), line, and texture. Following a discussion of each of these elements, student studio activities are suggested, resource materials which can be used in the activities are listed, possible discussion topics are recommended, and evaluation techniques are described. The guide also suggests areas of study for ancient art, medieval art, renaissance art, American art, and modern art; discusses the nature of art; and contains a glossary of terms. It concludes with a listing of selected sources of materials and services. (RM)
