This resource book is intended to assist special education teachers in planning art lessons to meet specific goals. It is divided into sections covering mild and moderately handicapped students, severely and profoundly handicapped students, and student with specific sensory handicaps. Each section discusses definitions and characteristics of the disabilities in question and offers a series of art activities targeting specific cognitive processes such as color discrimination and self-concept. Art activities are provided in the form of worksheets outlining time requirements, resources needed, preparations, detailed instructions, and possible expansion activities building on what has been done. A final resource section provides a descriptive list of helpful art skills, listed alphabetically; a list of collectible materials with possible sources for obtaining them; and lists of art centers, galleries, museums and other institutional resources both in-state and nationally. A glossary and a 25-item bibliography are also included. (PB)
