Art Education: Senior High School.
National Art Education Association, Reston, VA.
In this book a task force of art specialists report on art education as integral to a total school program. Emphasizing the need for art education to play a more dominant role in the education of all students, the three chapters discuss and examine problems and the direction of quality art education in high schools. Chapter one discusses art and the individual, the culture, and the community and outlines outcomes of art programs. The first part of chapter two briefly surveys the history of art education, and identifies emerging trends. The major and remaining portion suggests techniques that include student-oriented, interdisciplinary, behavioral objective, perceptual, experiential, and artist-in-residence approaches toward the teaching of art. Art in the secondary school and the community are discussed in chapter three. Aspects of teacher education, the learning environment of the public school in relation to time, space, and numbers, change in art education, and finance for art programs comprise the first section of the final chapter. The last section deals with art in the community, suggesting alternative approaches to art education, and ways that the school can incorporate community resources to enrich the art program.
