This studio course stresses the relationship of expression in arts and crafts to aspects of teaching and learning in other areas. Students develop approaches for discovering the use and origins of materials as well as their role in the curriculum. The course helps teachers to develop a basic art program in their classrooms. Studio experiences include painting, collage, clay work, print making and such crafts as puppet making, dyeing, and weaving. Reading and class discussions deal with the development of art curricula using child development as a base. Students study children's art through slides and children's actual work.
