K-12 Art Guide.
Furney, Trudy; And Others
The development of students in various art fields is the focus of this K-12 art curriculum guide. The philosophy of the art program and the roles of administrator, teacher, and parent are outlined. The underlying school community relationships, and the objective, goals, and purposes of art education are described. Phases of child development in general and for specific age groups from 4 to 18 years of age are given with the art characteristics of these age groups and their art program goals. Fundamental art concepts -- color, light and shade, design, and composition -- as well as the basic media, are outlined as to objectives, materials, and suggested projects. The remainder of the guide follows a format of objectives, materials, working knowledge, concepts, and suggested projects in presenting several art techniques. Methods, motivations, and processes are not dictated but are left to the individual teachers. Techniques in the guide include the following: lettering, interior and mural design, paper and paper mache, batik, tie-dying, printing, silversmithing, enameling, stained glass, wood, leather, textiles, ceramics, and sand casting.
