Designed for use in conducting media production training with Peace Corps fieldworkers, this manual is divided into three sections: skill exercises, line drawings, and directions for making art supplies from easily obtainable, low cost resources. Nineteen step-by-step skill exercises cover basic cutting, wet and dry mounting, simple drawing, freehand lettering, cutting and enlarging, tracing, and making blackboard stencils. Each exercise is divided into five sections: (1) beginner's skill requirements; (2) materials; (3) production process; (4) helpful suggestions; and (5) criteria for evaluating completed projects. Guidelines are also given for using the blackboard, flannelgraphs, and flip charts with village audiences. Suggestions for effective utilization of color and design describe creative ways to enhance visuals. Simple line drawings of subjects frequently used in making visuals for villagers are provided for fieldworkers to trace, copy, and enlarge. These drawings provide the illustrations needed in the prototype lessons, and optional head drawings allow fieldworkers to make their illustrations more racially exact. The concluding section contains recipes for making such low cost media materials as paste, ink, dyes, paints, rubber cement, and modeling clay. (JB)
