Art 7, Art 8, Art 9. Curriculum Guide 1985.
Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton.
This curriculum guide for grades 7-9 describes a sequential course focusing on: (1) drawings (the ways of recording visual information and discoveries), (2) composition (the way images are put together to create meaning), and (3) encounters with art (where people find art and how they respond to it). In drawing, students acquire a repertoire of approaches to record visual information, develop the ability to investigate visual relationships, communicate by developing technical competence and individual insight, and develop their skills at evaluation. In composition, students develop competence with the components of image, analyze the relationships among components of images, and express meaning through control of visual relationships. In encounters, students investigate the sources of images, how art differs from culture to culture and through time, and the cultural impact of images. Specific objectives and concepts to be covered in each grade and for each of the three areas are given along with study approaches, resources, and evaluation approaches. Appendices cover the developmental characteristics of students, approaches for use with special students, evaluation, and art criticism. (IS)
