Discipline-based art education : a curriculum sampler by Kay Alexander( Book )

11 editions published between 1991 and 2001 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This sampler was designed for art specialists and art museum educators with a basic understanding of teaching discipline-based art education content. The introduction offers a brief history of the Sampler and explains its intended purpose and use. Then 8 unit models with differing methodologies for relating art objectives to the four disciplines: aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and art production, are presented. The sampler consists of two elementary units, two units for middle school, two units intended for required high school art, one high school studio ceramic unit, and a brief unit for art teachers and art museum educators that focuses on visits to art museums. Learning activities, resource material, and learning strategies are given for the units along with a sequence of lessons organized on a theme. (1) "Art Touches the People in Our Lives" is a unit for primary level students that introduces children to basic concepts, and to selected elements and principles of art. They study ways artists use principles to express mood and meaning, learn about artists who have chosen emotional themes for their work, and express their own thoughts and feelings as they create artworks. (2) "Spaces and Places" is an elementary unit on architecture that shows how a topic might be articulated from one grade level to another. (3) "Many Ways of Seeing" is written for middle school students and investigates the concept of originality, the interpretation of visual language, symbolism, and the categories of fine art and folk art. (4) "Celebration!," Also a middle school unit, investigates how different cultures use art for common purposes. (5) "The Word as Image: Symbol to Gesture" investigates relationships between words and visual images in paintings and graphic arts, and leads to an understanding of contemporary abstract and non-objective painting. (6) "Art Exploration--A Global Approach" is a general education, high school unit, that gives balanced consideration to content from each of the four art disciplines. The unit presents a study of ceramics, painting, and sculpture, which incorporates art exemplars from many times, places, and cultures. (7) "The Artistic Heritage of Clay: Survival and Revival of Traditions" demonstrates how an elective high school studio course can focus on the art production discipline with enrichment from the other three art disciplines. (8) The final unit, "Experiencing Original Works of Art in a Museum," provides a model for engaging students in response to original works of art. (Mm)
