Art Classes Hold Exhibit
The art (lepartment held its
annual Public School Art Exhi-
l)it on January 18-25. The exhibit
was a project of the students of
pul>lic school art. The public
school art course consists of
thi'ee classes, all taught bj"
Roland S. Watts.
The nature of this course lies
in the understanding of the
child’s natural development in
art. This is essential to the suc
cessful guidance of children.
Creativity is develo])ed through
a program of learning experi
ences based on child growth in
visual expression.
The course has been designed
because it is believed that all
children have within themselves
ideas waiting to be expressed.
This course is the answer to
the need voiced by mothers, by
classroom teachers, and l)v stu
dents for a comprehensive and
practical program which applies
directly to the teaching of art
in the primary grades. Watts
said. The aim is to supply con
crete assistance to the untrained
teacher in art, so that the stu
dent concludes, "This is not hard
to do; I can do it.”
The course is simply i^lanned
to help teachers who will not
have supervisory assistance in
art. Guidance is given for plan
ning experiences in terms of
growth and developmental learn
ing of the young child.
The objectives of the coursc
arc: To provide theoretical
knowledge that each teacher
needs to be eciuipped with; to
create an atmosphere for the
growth of self-expression; to in-
ti-oduce and provide experiences
in different art media; to en
courage students to explore free
ly in a variety of subjects for
expression; to develop creative
thinking: to familiai'ize students
with their exact contemporary
purposes in teaching art in pub
lic schools.
The course is divided into two
parts. Part one presents theoreti
cal information for the teacher
so that he may develop his i)ro-
fessional background before he
enters the classroom. Part two
suggests actual classroom activi
ties in art.
The exhibits were composed
of paper bag masks, paper sculp
ture, puppets, papier mache
bowls, scrap projects, and box
Outstanding creations in each
area were made by Mrs. Agnes
Gay, an elementary education
major and a resident of Winston-
Some of the exhibits will lie
given to the Head Start Program
a n d underprivileged kinder
gartens. Others will remain in
the art department.
