Expressive Arts Project for Young Children with Disabilities. Final Report.
Hutinger, Patricia L.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of the Expressive Arts Project for Young Children with Disabilities, which developed and evaluated a CD-ROM, ArtSpace. The program, developed on a Macintosh platform, allows the child to either view or make art. It offers real time video, music especially produced to accompany images, voice, photographs, graphics, and text, all of which are integrated into the software and are organized around three elements: the "adult gallery," the "children's gallery," and the "studio." A surprising finding during field testing was the increased time and attention demonstrated by children with severe disabilities whose teachers had predicted little or no participation in planned art activities. After the executive summary, individual sections of the report describe the project's objectives and goals, conceptual framework, components, problems and their solutions, impact (including products, recommendations, findings, marketing) and future activities.
