Art Guide: Let's Make a Picture.
Bowerfind, Ibby Hallam; And Others
Guidelines for art education at the elementary through upper grade levels provide guidance and encouragement for students without excessive correction and evaluation procedures on the part of teachers. Elements of a picture and general approaches to teaching art emphasize creative and imaginative expression and skill development. The main body of the guide deals with what makes a picture and teaching ideas. The elements of a picture are explained and exemplified for each grade level. Processes, materials and equipment, teaching hints and evaluation methods are included for making pictures with the following: tempera, collage, colored chalk, tissue paper, finger paint, stitchery, texture, mosaics, chipboard, water color, silk screen, crayon, calligraphy, figure drawing, and toothpicks. A bibliography with general references and resources on specific techniques, a list of art books for children, and an index to audiovisual materials conclude the guide. (Author/KSM)
