Schoolhouse. A Newsletter from Educational Facilities Laboratories, No. 27. [Arts Education for Handicapped Students.]

This issue is about visual, participatory, and performing arts facilities and programs for handicapped children. Three methods for providing arts for mainstreamed handicapped students are illustrated. First, schools can operate programs for the visual and performing arts inside their own schoolhouses, or a district can build and staff a district arts center to serve all its students. Second, artists and musicians can be hired to provide programs for a semester or more inside a school. This requires that the artists and teachers receive special training. Third, children can be moved out of the schools into drama workshops or educational programs in such places as museums. Also described is a program that matches schools with cultural institutions and includes handicapped children in the program. (Author/IRT)
