Based on experiences growing out of a high school course on visual education, exercise cards are presented which are concerned with the boundaries of experience. They may act as preparation and stimulus for traditional art classes. The activities are divided into groups of enduring activities: mapping, representing; sensory awareness; inner landscape (self); and building and making. An average of about 30 activities is described for each section. The experiences must be done, affirmed, and shared in order for their richness to be understood and for their explanations to be apparent. They are ordered toward more complex understandings. Among the first are keeping notebooks and color and dream journals, caring for an animal or plant, and drawing important objects in home or environment. Later activities include imagining a radically changed environment; redefining self in terms of ability, expectations, and wants; and exploring sculpture in motion and sound. (LH)
