Color Preferences of Children in a Dallas Public School

Color Preferences of Children in a Dallas Public School

Date: January 1959
Creator: Foster, Lonnie George
Description: The problem of this study examines two questions which were posed. First, would color preferences of children in the N.W. Harllee School of the Dallas Independent School District be the same as those found in other studies of color preferences of elementary school children? Second, would there be differences in choices made by low academic aptitude groups and high academic aptitude groups? In an attempt to answer these questions, a series of tests was devised and administered to children grades IV through VII.

The Function of Craft Activities in Early Adolescence

The Function of Craft Activities in Early Adolescence

Date: 1957
Creator: Hull, Margaret Leatherwood
Description: This paper presents the thesis that a major emphasis on craft activities in the creative art program for early adolescence is indicated as an aid in the adjustment of the child to the more mature status in which he finds himself. As a test, during the school years 1955-56 and 1956-57, children in grades six and seven at the W. W. Bushman School in the Dallas Independent School District, Dallas, Texas, participated in various projects in crafts as part of the course of study in art, which also included drawing and painting. A description and evaluation of these problems are the subject of this paper.

Standards for Evaluating Paintings by Children in the Primary Grades

Standards for Evaluating Paintings by Children in the Primary Grades

Date: January 1954
Creator: Jenkins, Frances M.
Description: Since most adults generally evaluate children's creative expression by adult standards, view it as meaningless, and frequently present children with hackneyed forms of visual "art"--such as stencil patterns, or color books in which the children are encouraged to copy adult drawings--the purpose of this study is to develop legitimate standards which the adult observer may use in judging children's paintings and to explain these standards through analyses of children's paintings selected from Grades I through III.

Ceramics as a Creative Medium for Sixth and Seventh Grade Pupils

Date: August 1952
Creator: Pickens, Alex L.
Description: In view of the fact that clay has not been used so extensively or wisely in elementary art education as the generally recognized importance of the material seems to justify, the purpose of this study is to explore the possibilities of clay as a creative medium and to determine which of the many ceramic techniques are most suitable for use by pupils in the upper elementary grade.
