Art and Crafts for Slow Learners. Instructor Handbook Series.
Pattemore, Arnel W.
Written to describe successful projects which have been used in special education art classes, and to assist teachers in planning a worthwhile program, the booklet makes suggestions for arranging the long-range program in blocks or units, planning projects around changing seasons and established celebrations, using materials with definite weight such as clay or wood, and developing products that convey a sense of permanence. Topics to motivate picture-making and use of design are discussed. Ideas for arts and crafts include: lettering, gifts to make, modeling, paper mache, casting, ceramics, model building, paper and box sculpture, mobiles, weaving, print making, puppetry, the use of found materials supplied by the children, seasonal crafts, and classroom decorations. Pictures demonstrate completed projects. (GD)
