Art and the Drop-Out Student.
Unsworth, Jean Morman
School Arts, v90 n4 p14-15 Dec 1990
Argues that a major factor for student dropouts is lack of self-esteem, and shows the therapeutic value of art activities. Describes a self-portrait lesson with 15- and 16-year-old juveniles in a detention center. Decries the lack of attention to art in the schools. Suggests allowing students to practice right-brain drawing can improve self-concept. (KM)
