Handbook for Art Education, K-12.
Lahr, J. Stephen
The document presents guidelines to help art educators in elementary and secondary schools develop and implement art education programs. The guidelines were developed by Nebraska educators along lines suggested by the National Art Education Association. Major objectives are to help students develop personal expression, qualitative aesthetic judgments, cultural understandings, and visual discrimination. The document is presented in five chapters. Chapter I, designed for school administrators, presents information on the role of the board of education, principal, art supervisor, and art teacher in various types of art programs. Chapter II focuses on elementary school art programs. Information is presented on objectives, creativity, art projects for various grade levels, teacher role, evaluating student progress, and using instructional television. Chapter III discusses junior high school art programs. Topics discussed include objectives, materials, equipment, scheduling, art shows, and course credit. Chapter IV discusses secondary art programs and provides information on articulation of K-12 art programs. Students are involved in a variety of art activities at each grade level including drawing from different perspectives, describing and using basic art tools, learning about visual art heritage, and producing original art objects. The final chapter deals with budget considerations, uses of community and state resources, equipment purchasing, and additional resources relating to careers in arts and crafts. (DB)
