Butterfield, Karen, Ed.
The primary purpose of this document is to provide Arizona school district administrators with guidance in planning, implementing, and evaluating visual art education programs. Topics include curriculum content, teacher preparation, professional development, facilities, and program and teacher evaluation. Instruction in visual arts should provide for sequenced learning of thinking skills that may be accomplished through the integration of creative art expression, art in cultural heritage, and aesthetic assessment. The art teacher preparation guidelines include a checklist for undergraduate preparation, humanistic and behavioral content preparation, and teaching methods preparation. An inservice resource guide for quality art education programs also is outlined. The visual arts program evaluation questions concern such issues as policy/administrative support, financial support, curriculum content, scheduling materials and equipment, program staffing and facilities. The checklist for assessing curriculum addresses the philosophy of art education, goals, objectives, processes and skills, content, instructional resources, and student evaluation. Appendices consist of materials and equipment checklists. (KM)
