Art concepts are surveyed from the beginning of recorded time of the stone age to present day contemporary society in this curriculum guide for grades seven through nine. Since art reflects culture, the student interprets the past, analyzes the present, and projects the future by using art as a medium. Objectives are for the student to identify elements of composition, value, and universality in works of art; to trace the development of a specific style of art by examining the social, political, and religious development of each period; to recognize original works of art; and to relate to the world through art. Course content focuses on the history of civilization through art as a portrayer of human experiences. Teaching techniques include demonstrations, lectures, multi-media instruction, field trips, and readings. In addition to the above information, guidelines, objectives, and student and teacher resources are provided. Related documents are SO 005 207, SO 005 269 through SO 005 273. (SJM)
