Heard, Brian B., Ed.
This curriculum guide defines the role and objectives of the art program in the Akron Public Schools at all grade levels. Following a foreword on the role of the art teacher, materials are divided into three sections. Section I outlines the art program at the elementary level. The philosophy of elementary art and the four developmental stages of children's growth in art are described. Descriptions of programs in creative art, aesthetic awareness, cultural awareness, and art skills also contain outlines and charts of course objectives as well as lesson plans for art activities in grades 1 through 6. In section II, on the middle school program, a statement of philosophy is followed by course outlines for 7th and 8th grade art programs. Outlines include course objectives and lesson plans. Section III, on the senior high school art program, includes summaries of philosophy and goals and objectives, and provides a scope and sequence chart, a detailed outline of art experiences for each course at each grade level, and course descriptions and activities for the following courses: drawing and design, crafts, advanced crafts, art appreciation, ceramics, advanced ceramics, sculpture, painting, advanced painting, printmaking, commercial design, photography, and independent study.
