Correctional Institution Experimental Art Education Model.
William Paterson Coll., Wayne, NJ.
To provide an art education model outside traditional boundaries for experience and field work and to expand its teaching directions, William Paterson College has added rehabilitation and special education to its program. The program in art education was expanded and an experimental model prepared and developed for use in the New Jersey State Correctional Institution for Women in Clinton. The new model provided art majors pursuing teaching preparation and certification with an opportunity to add the teaching of art to prisoners, youthful offenders, and the mentally retarded to their regular teaching experience in the public schools. The program also oriented the college student to institutional life, to the teaching of art as a school function and recreational activity, and to living in a controlled residential situation under security regulations. Supervisory visits and seminars were conducted regularly on site by the program coordinator. (Included in this document are a description of the program, a senior intern handbook used in the program, and a bibliography prepared for the student interns.) (Author/JA)
