This Metropolitan Educational Center in the Arts (MECA) project report details activities directed toward exploration, implementation, and evaluation of new and exemplary approaches to education in the arts in the City of St. Louis and the surrounding five-county region. The MECA projects described fall generally into three categories: 1) Projects stressing direct involvement of students interacting with professionals over an extended period (Saturday Centers, Music Composition, Dance Project, Architecture Workshop, Community Music School Branches); 2) Projects offering occasional aesthetic experiences which vary from mere exposure programs to sequential activities which include opportunities for active participation (Art Museum Education Project, Theater Performance Program, Music Performance Education Project, Joint Choir and Joint Orchestra Projects); and 3) Projects serving a training or re-training function for teachers (Course in Visual Arts, Man-Made Environment, Theatre Workshop for Teachers). A report on dissemination activities for the project is included. Appendices contain lists of project personnel and selected dissemination materials. (SHM)
