Art and the Urban Child.
Armstrong, Carmen L.
This paper summarily reviews cross-cultural studies of the art work of lower class black children and middle class white children, research done on cognitive development patterns of inner city blacks, and theories of the way in which experiences with art can affect the cognitive domain of these children. Suggestions for appropriate subject matter and teaching techniques appear in this review. Research reported indicates that lower cognitive, perceptual, and drawing development were evident in the lower class inner city black child. It is believed that the implementation of the emphases and teaching methods of art curriculum suggested by research could permit common characteristics to emerge which could observe, describe, and measure the significant uniqueness of the black child's cognizance and portrayal of inner city life.
