Kinetic Kaleidoscope: Exploring Movement and Energy in the Visual Arts.
Herman, Gail Neary; Hollingsworth, Patricia
Works of visual art contain an inner dynamism and energy that an individual's perceptual apparatus can translate into kinesthetic impressions, movement, and sound. Through this translation, a child's natural energies can interact with the artwork through multiple sensory experiences, enriching art appreciation. After a brief examination of the theoretical background, the text has four main parts; the first three are designed to give grades 3-8 students a movement vocabulary and a repertoire of movements with which to respond to artworks. The last section presents field-tested exercises designed to expand students' responsiveness to art through kinesthetic and visual interaction. A glossary and a 14-item list of references conclude the volume. (MM)
