Adventures in Art.
Ladewig-Goodman, Jeanne
Classroom teachers are provided with ideas and procedures for teaching art in grades one through six. The activities encourage individuality, creativity, and aesthetic awareness in the child. For grades one through three, activity suggestions include two-dimensional painting, painting stuffed animals, and painting with sponges; paper tearing and cutting; using yarn, chalk, boxes, clay, crayons, and tissue paper; making fabric and magazine collages and various constructions; and printmaking with vegetables and fruit. For grades four through six, activity suggestions include using watercolors and tempera; paper cutting; sculpture with wire, toothpicks, and cardboard; making collages and bas reliefs; and using crayons for batiking. Miscellaneous activities include bottle fun, string designs, murals, ideas for paintings, and non-directed creative activities. The teacher is warned not to judge the students' art by adult standards. Art projects described in the document are not carried out to the last detail so that the teacher and students can adapt the activities to suit their individual needs, interests, and abilities. The need for orderliness and cleaning up one's own mess is stressed. (AV)
