Out of the East Horizon: Chinese Art from the Seattle Art Museum. Curriculum Resource Unit.
Loudon, Sarah M.; Liu, Lucy
As the artistic and intellectual elite of their society, Chinese scholars had to be educated in a number of fields including music, poetry, painting, and calligraphy. This teacher resource packet, which includes an audiotape and 16 color slides with a descriptive script and comprehensive lesson guide, examines some of the arts associated with the traditional Chinese scholar. The packet is designed to be used by general classroom teachers of upper elementary students, but may be adapted for use with younger and older students. The multidisciplinary unit is organized in 5 sections: (1) "A Room for Inspiration: The Chinese Scholar's Studio"; (2) "The Painted Word: Chinese Language and Art"; (3) "The Chinese Scholar's View of Nature"; (4) "Slide List"; and (5) "References." Thirteen individual lessons, given in the 3 instructional units, are sequentially ordered to build on each other and are designed to accommodate student learning styles as indicated by the 4MAT System. Each lesson focuses on a slide image or on provided student handouts and worksheets. Objectives, procedures, activities, and questions for conclusion and evaluation are given. Supplementary materials include an audiotape of Chinese music and overlay diagrams of brushstrokes. Contains 32 bibliographic and resource references, and a pronunciation guide. (MM)
