How To Use Child-Size Masterpieces for Art Appreciation: A Parent and Teacher Handbook for Matching, Pairing, Sorting, and Sequencing Postcard-Size Reproductions.
Wolf, Aline D.
This handbook presents activities for teaching art appreciation to pre-school children. Based on the premise that young children learn primarily through the experience of handling and manipulating materials, child-size art postcards are indicated as a teaching tool. These postcards are readily adaptable to many different methods of displaying, comparing, and sorting. The exercises are graded into levels of difficulty in "Steps," which include: (1) "Matching Identical Paintings"; (2) "Pairing Companion Paintings"; (3) "Grouping Paintings by One Artist"; (4) "Learning Names of Artists"; (5) "Names of Famous Paintings"; (6) "Schools of Art"; (7) "Sorting Schools of Art"; and (8) "Using a Time Line." Appendices include "Instructions for Making Materials"; "The Schools of Art in History"; and a "List of Painters with Pronunciation Guide." (MM)
