An examination of 25 art programs funded at least partly by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare funds throughout the United States is presented. Programs were nominated by professional organizations and 25 sites were selected and visited by project members. The document is presented in four chapters. Chapter I discusses some major issues in arts education raised by site visit reports. Chapter II, the major portion of the document, presents descriptions of the 25 programs. The first three reports concern IMPACT (Interdisciplinary Model Programs in the Arts for Children and Teachers) sites in Columbus, Ohio; Glendale, California; and Eugene, Oregon. Other projects discussed are the Children's Art Museum in Denver; Fine Arts Career Education (FACE), Columbus, Georgia; Project Arts, Bethesda; Project Zero, which conducts basic research in art education at Harvard University; arts for the aging in St. Paul; the aesthetic education program of the Central Midwestern Regional Educational Library (CEMREL) in St. Louis; Theatre Resources for Youth (TRY) in Durham, New Hampshire; arts and reading development and Museums Collaborative, Inc., in New York City; the Windmill Street School in Providence, Rhode Island; and the Work Activity Center for Handicapped Adults in Salt Lake City. Brief descriptions of projects not visited comprise Chapter III. Chapter IV contains a listing of all sites initially nominated as well as names and addresses of contact persons for all projects mentioned in the report. (KC)
