This Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, one of a series of 18, provides a guide to art instruction and art experiences for preschool children. Upon completion of the module the CDA trainee is expected to be able to implement daily art activities, which employ materials appropriate for the development of art concepts in children. Additionally, trainees are expected to be able to plan, execute and evaluate at least five learning experiences in art media; execute and evaluate a minimum of five incidental experiences for developing art concepts; provide opportunities for creative, free expression; emphasize involvement and creativity in art expression; utilize at least 10 art media; enhance discovery learning through art media; and utilize art media as a tool for teaching concepts in other areas. Early sections of the module define terms and suggest a procedure by which trainees can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Subsequent chapters discuss the teacher's role in art activities, art instruction and activity development. The module also provides 14 learning activities, ranging from resource unit development to art activity comparison. Supplementary books, pamphlets and films are listed. (RH)
