Art Image Preschool: Introducing 3-to-5-Year-Old Children to Art and Artists. [Packet] 3: Portraits Are Images of People. Teacher's Guide.
This teacher's guide accompanies a packet of five art reproductions based on portraits as a theme. The guide offers suggestions for engaging children's attention and curiosity about art and artists, and encourages exploration of the issues these works present through art activities, discussions, learning centers, field trips, and other experiences within and beyond the classroom. The activities emphasize connections between young children's concerns and those which artists in various times and places have explored in their works. Artists presented and art works examined in this guide are: (1) Currier and Ives, "The Little Pets"; (2) Pablo Picasso, "Portrait de Marie-Therese"; (3) Mary Cassatt, "Spring: Margot Standing in the Garden"; (4) Claude Monet, "Coin d'Appartement (Corner of Apartment)" and (5) Paul Kane, "Caw-Wacham." After introductory sections which provide background information regarding the instructional methodology, and suggestions for discussions and activities, the guide includes objectives, concepts, materials, preparations, and resources for presenting each of the five art reproductions. The guide concludes with biographical notes on each of the artists represented in this guide, and an annotated list of art reproductions in the Art Image series. (MM)
