Summers, Kathleen Richards
This resource book for elementary school teachers is designed to supply art projects which can be used alone or to reinforce lessons in other academic subjects. The 25 projects have been created, researched, adapted, and used in the Department of Education of The High Museum of Art (Georgia) since 1968. Descriptions of each project provide: (1) the idea to be taught; (2) project activity; (3) purpose of the project; (4) teacher preparation and materials; (5) motivating questions; (6) instructions; (7) suggested activities; (8) other curriculum tie-ins; and (9) a bibliography. The projects can be performed by individuals or groups. The curriculum tie-ins offer suggestions for adapting the activities to math, science, social studies, and language arts classes. Line drawings and photographs illustrate concepts and procedures, and 12 slides are included for five of the projects. The projects are indexed by their curriculum tie-ins and by element of art (color, line, texture, shape, illusion, space, and symbolism). A selected bibliography of five teacher resources, three student resources, and two teacher or student resources are included, as well as a list of material sources and a user's evaluation and order form.
