California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Twenty-three exemplary art education programs in California school districts are identified and described. Selected on the basis of criteria stressing program management and commitment, these programs represent three categories: comprehensive multiart experiences, in-school programs, and shared community-school resources. The comprehensive programs make various use of resource teachers, professional artists, community art education resources, and demonstration schools with inservice education components. In-school programs encourage environmental beautification projects, dance and movement workshops, publications of student art and creative writing, and participation in community events. School/community programs, often utilizing resources at local universities and museums, provide individual and group art experiences, and sponsor theatrical workshops and touring programs. For each program, information is given about initiator, grade level, funding, and contact. (AV)
