This report, written by a task force of specialists in elementary art education, focuses on potentials and problems confronting art educators as they identify their roles and directions in elementary schools. Emphasis is upon involvement on the part of teachers, administrators, and community cultural resources in developing an effective art program which regards art as integral to the total elementary school program. The book is arranged into three major chapters. In chapter one the broad concerns, objectives, and rationale for the teaching of art is related to the individual, the culture, and community are introduced. Although the major portion of chapter two is devoted to discussing several current teaching approaches, the history of art education in the United States is also reviewed. Chapter three deals with art in the elementary school and the community. Roles of the elementary art specialist, teacher, and supervisor of art, suggestions for improving and changing the program, and art in special education are discussed. The last portion of the book emphasizes ties between the school and community in developing an elementary art education program. Related documents are SO 005 643 through SO 005 645. (SJM)
