Concepts and Performance Objectives for an Art Program K-12. Second Revision.
Gardner, William F.; Metzger, Melvin A.
This art guide, revised by the Maryland Cooperative Curriculum Service Center, is intended for the art specialist interested in developing the art curriculum in grades K-12. The purpose of the guide is to provide a strong, varied, sequential program that meets student needs. Through a variety of suggested activities such as creating certain art forms, using colors, taking field trips, comparing artists, examining art works, and conducting class discussion the student learns about art concepts. He demonstrates that he has acquired the concepts by performing to meet objectives stated in the guide. Levels K through seven, and eight through twelve constitute the two major divisions of the guide. The concepts, performance objectives, and suggested activities for levels K through seven are organized in terms of art elements (line, shape, color, texture, and form), each of which is treated separately. The organization for levels eight through twelve is established by different art areas (drawing, painting, sculpture, graphics, and crafts). A bibliography of recommended books, films, and filmstrips is provided. (Author/RM)
