Art Teaching Guides: Drawing. Kindergarten-Grade 6. Art in the Elementary School Curriculum Bulletin No. 8f, 1968-69 Series.
Riley, Olive L.; And Others
Designed to offer practical and flexible suggestions, this curriculum guide presents art teaching methods for instructing K-6 students in drawing techniques. Information in the guide is presented by grade level and further subdivided into sections on: (1) materials needed; (2) suggested topics; (3) motivation and guidance; (4) activities; and (5) evaluation. Kindergarten to second grade students are described as needing little motivation and guidance and as intrigued with colors and using crayons. Third and fourth grade art teachers are encouraged to keep alive the imaginative quality that younger students express through the promotion of fantasy combined with visual memory. Since fifth and sixth grade students have a strong sense of realism, art teachers are encouraged to instruct students to incorporate personal experiences and everyday activities into creative drawing expression.
