Art. Program Planning, Primary, Junior.
York Borough Board of Education, Toronto (Ontario).
Over 20 ideas for planning art programs for grades 1 through 6 are included in this planning guide. Introductory comments stress the individuality of children and caution art teachers not to judge by adult standards and not to direct lessons step-by-step or show how things should be drawn. Outdoor sketching is recommended as a way to develop awareness, observation, and knowledge of perspective. Many line drawings graphically illustrate ideas in the following areas: picture making with tempera and pastels, paper cutting, scoring and shaping, tissue paper, line design, crayon resist, crayon etching, finger painting, figure drawing, portraits, sawdust modeling, murals, puppetry, stitchery, paper weaving, mobiles, lettering, poster making, and bulletin boards. Recipes are given for materials, such as sawdust mache, play dough, and modeling clay. Two lists present suggested topics for picture making at the primary and intermediate levels. Within the activity sections, brief paragraphs define some of the techniques and suggest appropriate grade levels. Ideas for displaying art in attractive groupings are included. (AV)
