Elementary Art Education Guide.
Frederick County Public Schools, MD.
This curriculum guide for elementary art education is divided into 21 parts. Following a preface and acknowledgements, the philosophy, framework, goals, and objectives of the art curriculum for Frederick County (Maryland) are outlined. Grade level course overviews and scope and sequence for art education in grades 1-5 are then presented. An excerpt from Edmund Feldman's "Varieties of Visual Expression" describes aesthetic expression, general characteristics of child development are presented for grades 1-5, and a note to educators describes the role of art in elementary education and presents possibilities for an interdisciplinary approach to art activities. Design terms are defined, and design concepts are listed by grade level. The remainder of the handbook contains models for incorporating art education into the various disciplines at the elementary level. In the section on social studies, guidelines are offered for studying the arts of Africa, Alaska, Asia, Black Americans, Central America, early America and Europe, Hawaii, Colonial Maryland, the Middle East, Native Americans, and South America. For each type of art, styles, media and skills, special terms, slides, and references are outlined. Remaining sections discuss art education and language arts, math, science, holidays, seasons, gifted and talented education, as well as art room environment, safety, and equipment. Resources and a bibliography conclude the handbook. (LP)
