Senior 1 Art. Interim Guide.
Hartley, Michael, Ed.
This Manitoba, Canada curriculum guide presents an art program that effectively bridges Canadian junior and senior high school art levels. Content areas include media and techniques, history and culture, criticism and appreciation, and design. Four core units present fundamental art knowledge through themes based on self and environmental exploration. Media and techniques used include drawing, collage, sculpture and ceramics. Four secondary units are enrichment oriented. Maskmaking expands on self-exploration by examining different faces humans present to establish identity and communication. Mass media introduces students to concepts of advertisement communication. Differences between need and want are explored. Landscape is studied as interpretations of environment as seen, remembered, or imagined. Investigation of the future allows for exploration of various scenarios with a wide variety of materials. The teaching method employed is problem solving/inquiry. Idea journals and portfolios are identified and used as evaluation tools. Appendices and bibliographies are included. (MM)
