A Visual Arts Guide for Idaho Schools, Grades K-6.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
Over 80 art activities for elementary school students are presented in this curriculum guide. Introductory sections define the roles of school superintendents, principals, art supervisors, and art teachers in supporting art programs; outline goals of an art curriculum; review developmental stages of children's art skills from age two through 13; and provide hints on handling media such as papier mache, clay, and tempura paints. The bulk of the guide consists of specific art lessons for each grade level from kindergarten through sixth grade. Each lesson explains materials, procedures, key vocabulary (i.e., texture, pattern), and design elements and principles. Lessons include clay pinch-pots, finger painting, paper weaving, tie-dye with crepe paper, monoprint, sand casting, still-life drawing, watercolor and India ink, multimedia tissue paper collage, printmaking with paraffin, burlap weaving, crayon batik, bas-relief in plaster and clay, box sculpture, glue-line relief prints, linoleum-block printing, and clay sculpture and jewelry. A section on photography offers activities for grades one through six and gives recipes, formulas, and instructions for making cameras and darkroom equipment. Concluding sections discuss art activities for handicapped students and list basic art equipment, facility requirements, and audiovisual and print resources. (AV)
