One of twenty course guides in the Community Living Skills Guide for the College for Living series, this document provides guidelines and workbook activities for the course, Art. The series of courses for developmentally disabled adults is intended to supplement residential programs and to aid in orienting institutionalized persons to eventual integration into the community. An introductory section, Notes to Teachers, gives suggestions for using the ideas in the guide. A "talent" test is provided to assess students' ability, desire to experience and learn, and previous exposure. Goals for the course include providing the student with the opportunity to get in touch with his inner being or self and to make choice individually. Objectives and suggested activities are provided for these sections: General Introduction, Making Order Out of Life (Patterns), and Simple Projects. Ideas are also given for projects and activities in constructing, carving and modeling, crafts, and drawing and painting. Materials needed, techniques, and concepts are outlined. Other guides in the series and related documents (a volunteer training workshop packet and curriculum guide for fourteen courses) are available separately. (See note.)
