Belcher, Jean; Hilf, Anne
This curriculum guide for Art Education, grades 7-12, deals with forms of contemporary artistic expression--plastics, stitchery, posters, macrame, leather, and candle making. The rationale of the course is to legitimize experimental art in the curriculum and broaden the learner's interest in contemporary art activities. The course includes specific information on the following aspects of each art medium: contemporary artists, historical background, introduction to tools, methods, and materials, evaluation and critique by the learner of his own and other's work. The objectives of each course are to be evaluated according to standards set by both teacher and student, and include the student's ability to demonstrate competency in and recognize quality contributions to each medium. The course outline suggests the teacher's role in introducing each medium, establishing its relevance, serving as consultant to the student, and insuring an applied arts approach with emphasis on creativity. A bibliography of resource publications is included. (JH)
