This document provides art information with a range of applications for Arizona preschool teachers, administrators, and parents to guide them in their development of an appropriate, preschool art curriculum. Three primary goals are endorsed: (1) making art; (2) looking at and talking about art; and (3) art in culture and history. Instruction in visual arts should reflect an awareness and understanding of developmental levels, and lessons should include sensory, aesthetic, cognitive, and psychomotor experiences. Two approaches to lesson planning are outlined together with several examples of both types. Parent and teacher roles in understanding, cooperating, teaching, and providing reinforcement and feedback also are outlined. The document concludes with sources for information about hazardous art materials and a list of visual arts resources. (KM)
