Self-Esteem and Elementary School Art Activities: An Operational Approach to Acquiring and Using Self-Esteem and Art Skills (Working Module One).
Demery, Marie
A model for teaching elementary school art contains a rationale that outlines the interrelationship between self-esteem and constructive creativity as promoted in well-designed art activities. Self-esteem is defined, and characteristics of a child with high self-esteem are outlined. Conditions contributing to the development of high self-esteem are also detailed: environment; discipline and responsibility; encouragement; self-acceptance; heritage; teacher-student interaction; self-evaluation; self-respect; communication skills; and the ability to learn on one's own. An instructor's guide then outlines seven activities which can renew and enhance the self-esteem of children through an emphasis on success, one-to-one and group interaction, basic art skills, multicultural data, and the uniqueness and worth of each individual. The seven activities involve the creation of a: decoupage, marbleized painting, portraiture, blind contour drawing, mural painting, pinch pot sculpture, and advertisement. For each activity, a lesson plan lists concepts covered, self-esteem objectives, materials, procedure, references, and, where relevant, demonstration steps. A four-page list of references concludes the module. (LP)
