The main purpose in the formation of this curriculum guide for the teaching of art in the elementary school is to offer the elementary teachers of Longview School District additional teaching ideas, suggestions and activities for the art program. The intention, too, is to interweave the art activity itself with historical development and origins of art along with the concept of the basic art elements. In presenting this guide, the writer hopes to foster opportunities for increasing aesthetic awareness among teachers and students as art relates to our environment.
