This publication includes descriptions of arts programs, units of study, lesson plans, and course outlines submitted by Illinois arts teachers who answered the invitation to document their successful approaches to art edication. This compilation was not designed to be prescriptive, but to be representative of activities in Illinois. The articles are organized by categories: elementary--"Tempera Batik a la Rousseau" (Louise Hage); junior high/middle school--"Linear Perspective in the Renaissance" (Marie Samuel) and "Greek Vases: Form and Decoration" (Marie Samuel); secondary, including--"Art To Go" (Margaret K. Zielinski-Spinner); and higher education, including--"Aesthetics without Tears" (Suzanne Cohan-Lange). The material authored by K-12 teachers describes how the art program works at their schools and some elements of what goes on in their classrooms. The articles written by higher education teachers feature suggestions for classroom teachers and descriptions of what is taught to prospective art educators. (DB)
