Fine Arts Educational Improvement Project. Evaluation Record 1969-1970.
This document is an evaluation and record of the Fine Arts Educational Improvement Project, a Title III, E.S.E.A. "PACE" project administered in the state of Illinois. The project functioned primarily in the subject fields of art, drama, and music. Within the general purpose of improving educational opportunities in the arts, the project recognized these major objectives: 1) To provide live performances so that every child may have first-hand experiences with quality concerts, plays, and art exhibits or demonstrations; 2) To provide a variety of inservice training experiences for teachers to increase teaching effectiveness in the fine arts; 3) To provide models in the form of pilot programs to demonstrate unique approaches to fine arts education; and 4) To provide information materials, and services to project area schools through establishment and operation of a central Fine Arts Center. Measurement of evaluation results indicates that a significant number of the objectives of the project were attained. Samples of project materials are included in the report: evaluation forms, publicity forms, pre-performance notes, conference reports, curriculum guides in art and music.
