Art Lessons for the Middle School. A DBAE Curriculum. Reproducible Book.
Reynolds, Nancy Walkup
The art lessons presented in this teaching guide are concept-centered and integrate the four disciplines of art: art production, art history, art criticism, and aesthetics. Individual units are organized by the elements of art (line, value, texture, color, shape, form, and space) and the principles of design (balance, emphasis, contrast, variety, rhythm, proportion, and unity). Additional units for art history, art criticism, and aesthetic judgement are included. Projects within each unit are sequentially and cumulatively arranged and present a variety of techniques and media appropriate to each unit's given art concept. Learning objectives are stated in behavioral terms. Level of skill, materials and preparation, instructional resources, motivation, procedures, evaluation, and necessary time allotment are identified. Vocabulary terms are given. (MM)
