The Interrelationship of the Arts: A Course in Aesthetic Criticism and Appreciation. Experimental Curriculum Bulletin.
Pollard, Barbara; And Others
This course outline, intended for ninth and/or tenth grade students, is designed to: (1) help students develop evaluative criteria for various art forms; (2) become aware of the interrelationships of the arts; and (3) realize that all art forms are part of the individual's attempt to reflect upon and interpret the world in which they live. In the section entitled "Introduction to the Arts," there are 14 lessons on the nature of art, 8 lessons on the skills necessary for creating art, and 10 lessons on the extent of interrelation between the arts. In the section entitled "Art: A Mirror for Man," 48 lessons are devoted to a survey of the principles underlying the elements, characteristics, and expression of Classicism, Medievalism, the Renaissance, the Baroque, Romanticism, and Modernism with the objective of teaching students how these major movements have influenced artists. The section entitled "New Art Forms and A Re-evaluation of the Criteria for Judging Art," considers in 10 lessons the contributions of the camera, electronic music, concrete poetry, and happenings as theater to the world of art. A list of 29 suggested discography items and a 40-item bibliography are included. (AEM)
