Basic Art Skills: The South Carolina Framework for Visual Arts Education.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia.
This framework proposes to provide South Carolina school district personnel with guidelines for developing curricular programs based upon the needs of students in their individual school districts. It furnishes four goals and objectives upon which to build a series of sequential learning experiences that balance art production and the study of aesthetics, cultural arts heritage, and art criticism. Component 1, "Aesthetic Perception: Visual and Tactile," seeks to develop and expand aesthetic perception in elementary and secondary students. Component 2, "Creative Expression: Artistic Knowledge and Skills," aims at helping children develop and expand visual arts knowledge and skills to express ideas imaginatively. Component 3, entitled "Visual Arts Heritage: Historical and Cultural," proposes to help students acquire knowledge of historical and cultural developments that occur as a result of varying needs and aesthetic points of view. The fourth and final component named "Aesthetic Valuing: Analysis, Interpretation, and Judgment," attempts to help students develop a base for making informed aesthetic judgments. (Author/LBG)
