Davis sets a NEW standard for Middle School Art Programs Explorations in Art is designed specifically to engage and motivate the middle school student, with theme-based learning, process-based studios, and meaningful application of art concepts, as students create and view artworks. Theme-Based Learning Unit themes underscore the relevance of art in students' lives and reveal the important roles art plays in cultures around the world. These enduring human themes foster active inquiry and offer opportunities for natural connections across the curriculum. Process-Based Studios By learning a process that emphasizes the importance of thinking, planning, and reflection in creating superior, original artworks, students go far beyond "make and take." Meaningful Application of Art Concepts Students are introduced to the elements and principles of art in the beginning of each book. Subsequent lessons provide in-depth study and practice of art concepts. These concepts are reinforced throughout each lesson in the viewing of fine art and students' original artworks. first in art education since 1901 24 DAVISART.COM 800-533-2847 Circle No. 134 on Reader's Service card. 50 PORTLAND STREET, WORCESTER MA 01608
