Visual Literacy and Its Vice Versa Component: Part I Report--The Development of a Verbal/Visual Approach to Viewing Linear Drawings--A Modified Instructional Module.
Demery, Marie
Designed specifically for beginning college students enrolled in art appreciation and studio art courses, this validated visual literacy module will help students acquire verbal and visual skills necessary for viewing, comprehending, and valuing linear drawings. The module can also be used with high school students and adult learners. All materials necessary for implementing the module, including the drawings or sketches, are included. The unit can be used in independent or group study. Self-directed activities are provided which help students analyze different kinds of linear drawings, e.g., drawings showing people waiting, batting, thinking, racing, defending, throwing, and striking. Students learn the definitions of new vocabulary associated with the various drawings. They also learn about the techniques used to make the various sketches. For example, in the throwing sketch a combination of thick and thin lines is used to show movement in every part of the athlete's body. Verbal and visual pre- and posttests are provided. A bibliography concludes the unit. (RM)
