Artworks for Elementary Teachers: Developing Artistic and Perceptual Awareness. Seventh Edition.
Herberholz, Donald; Herberholz, Barbara
This text is designed for use by college and university students who plan to teach art to children. After an introduction that briefly explains the four components of discipline-based art education, the text is organized in six chapters. (1) "Artists and the Images They Make" introduces students to ideas about how several specific artists go about making art. (2) "When Children Make Art" gives an overview of the traditional stages of development in a child's artistic growth and offers suggestions for student lessons. (3) "Understanding the Elements of Art: Response and Production" and (4) "Understanding the Principles of Art: Response and Production" enable students to become fluent in the terminology and concepts related to the vocabulary of art. Art production activities offered in these chapters, give students the opportunity to try their hand at making their own art. Chapter 5, "Responding to Artworks: Art Criticism, Art History, and Aesthetics," encourages awareness of the criticism process that is involved in studying and understanding art. Suggested ways to use reproductions of artworks in the elementary classroom are given. The organization of chapter 6, "A Narrative Time line of World Art," is that of a chronological summary of the history of art. It is designed for use as a reference. Activities and Points to Ponder regarding art and a pronunciation guide are provided. The text concludes with Notes and Bibliography, Resources for Art Education, and an Index. (MM)
