Art: A View of the Human Experience. An Arizona Guide for Art Curriculum Development K-12.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.; Arizona Art Education Association, Inc., Phoenix.
This curriculum guide for grades K-12 is designed to help art teachers, classroom teachers, art consultants, and administrators develop and maintain art programs. The guide has four main parts, the first part containing an introduction and forward. Part two includes the rationale, the focus, and the components of an art education curriculum. Also contained within the second part are suggestions on establishing art education goals; processes for the evaluation of student, teacher, and program success; and a guide to help develop a scope and sequence of art experiences. Part three is a scope and sequence example, organized into early, middle, and late childhood years. Within each age level, the scope and sequence have been arranged into three units dealing with the human experience: the self, the family/home, and the society/community. Each unit is divided into two and three dimensional experiences: the two dimensional experiences covering drawing, painting, graphics, and film; the three dimensional experiences covering crafts, sculpture, and environmental planning. Each experience is stated in terms of its four components: the activity, the motivation, the concepts, and the skills. Part four contains a glossary and extensive references for periodicals, books, and audiovisual resources. (Author/JK)
