Creative Art, Course Description.
Benna, Sandra; Anderson, Floyd L.
Prepared by an instructor and curriculum development specialists of the Minnesota Work Opportunity Center, this document describes an art course which affords the dropout and/or hard-core unemployed youth an opportunity to discover, explore, design, and evaluate. The approach focuses on the individual and what he wants to accomplish. During the initial interview, questions are asked to determine what areas of art the student is most interested in, his strongest areas, and areas where skills need to be developed or strengthened. The art program offers two broad selections, the "breadth experience" or the "depth experience," with the former being the choice of most. Content is broken down into small instructional units of design, plastic elements, drawing and painting, printing, sculpture, and lettering. An annotated bibliography of books, periodicals, and audio-visual materials is included. Brief descriptions of the Center's instructional areas, a listing of teaching techniques and motivational devices, and some case studies are appended. Related materials are available as VT 011 518-VT 011 533 in this issue. (SB)
