A model elementary art curriculum for use in Manitoba (Canada) schools is outlined. The guide's first section provides an overview of the program, discussing why art is taught in grades 1-6, program design, goals, objectives, implementation and evaluation, special education, child development in art and a scope and sequence. The second section discusses techniques for teaching art appreciation and includes sample color plates. The teacher's role, program content, and facilities, equipment, and materials needed in art education at the kindergarten level are discussed in the third section. Sample activities are provided. The next three sections deal with the art program in grades 1-2, grades 3-4, and grades 5-6, respectively. For each of these three levels, the curriculum is outlined using three basic approaches: theme, medium, and design. Objectives, program content, and learning experiences and activities are provided for each approach. Appendices contain a glossary; a suggested list of art materials and equipment; suggestions concerning classroom organization and display; notes on media, techniques, and processes; a discussion of elements and principles of design; sample lesson plans; a bibliography of resource materials; and lists of hazardous art materials.
