A Visual Arts Guide for Idaho Schools, Grades 7-12.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
Approximately 50 art activities for students in junior and senior high school are presented in this curriculum guide. Introductory sections define the roles of school superintendents, principals, art supervisors, and art teachers in supporting art programs, and outline goals and objectives of an art curriculum. The bulk of the guide consists of suggested art experiences in two-dimensional and three-dimensional techniques. Included in the two-dimensional techniques are activities related to elements of design (shape, color, texture), principles of arrangement (balance, harmony, contrast, movement), graphic representation, drawing, painting (watercolor, oil, acrylic, tempura, encaustic, sand, ink), print making (linoleum, wood block, silk screen), and photography. Among the three-dimensional techniques are activities in sculpturing, leathercraft, jewelry, lapidary art, ceramic art, and weaving. Other sections present miscellaneous activities such as decoupage and batik; review aspects of art programs for handicapped students; and list recipes, facility requirements, basic art equipment, supply sources, a glossary, and a bibliography.
