This guide to teaching art in the elementary grades aims to develop art experiences that stimulate visual awareness, personal expression, self-evaluation, and ease in using art media. The following art experiences are covered with activities classified in order of difficulty: clay, collage, crayon, drawing, masks, mobiles, mosaics, murals, painting, paper, printmaking, puppets, stitchery, three dimensional art, and weaving. Other practical resources include tools and materials necessary for a complete art program, formulas for art media, ways to display art, a guide to basic needlework stitches, and a list of art elements and principles. The manual also introduces the teacher to the characteristics of a well-conducted art class and to ways for motivating and evaluating children's experiences with art. Other educational guides for the teacher include a categorization of developmental stages for art activities and the mechanics of an art lesson. (JH)
