Art Tools and Materials Suitable for Manufacture in the School or Home Laboratory
This thesis discusses the theory that the production of many art tools and materials in the school or home laboratory is feasible, and that it would not only reduce the cost of a school art program but also enrich it. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc130448/
Ceramics as a Creative Medium for Sixth and Seventh Grade Pupils
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. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc163824/
Color Preferences of Children in a Dallas Public School
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. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc108023/
The Consideration of Visual Aspects of Art in Motion Picture Awards
The writer, who, as an art student, has a special interest in the visual qualities of motion picture art, has undertaken to investigate the extent to which the visual aspect of art was outstanding in motion pictures receiving awards during the years 1951 through 1954. As a result of this investigation he hopes to reach some valid conclusions concerning the chronological and geographical distribution of visually excellent pictures during the period and to consider the consequences of those trends which can be identified. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc107872/

An Evaluation of Outdoor Advertising Art from 1920 to 1950
For several years the author has viewed with interest the various kinds of outdoor signs. College courses in advertising art and advertising procedure, as well as practical experience in the advertising field, have increased his interest in this fascinating business and prodded him on to further investigation. With the desire to extend his knowledge of outdoor advertising and to pass on the body of his research to others who find it useful, the author has undertaken this study. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc96931/
An Evaluation of the Esthetic Judgment of Students in Austin College
For the average person many opportunities for esthetic enjoyment of useful objects exist if the relationship between beauty and utility is understood. Furniture and other articles of daily use have acquired new and radical changes of design, based on function, which are altering esthetic concepts. This new approach to design is gradually being accepted by manufacturers and producers. Do purchasers appreciate and accept these structural and functional bases of contemporary design? If they do not, wherein does their deficiency lie, and how may it be corrected? This is the problem that the writer has attempted to investigate through this study. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc83749/

The Function of Craft Activities in Early Adolescence
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. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc107966/
The Geometric Analysis of Four German Paintings in the National Gallery of Art
In a recent study of the geometric analysis of various masterpieces of many periods dating from early Egyptian to contemporary times, the author noted with particular interest the structure of the paintings of the German Renaissance masters. It seemed that the Germans used a simpler geometric plan in their compositions than did the Italian Renaissance painters. The writer was inspired to make further investigation to determine if such a theory were true. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc96971/
The Geometric Analysis of Two Paintings in the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts
This study was undertaken to help determine by geometric analysis whether the two paintings, one attributed to the fourteenth century Sienese artist, Ugolina da Siena, and the other to the fifteenth century Sienese artist, Sano di Pietro, were painted by these artists. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc107907/
An Investigation of the Correlation between Academic and Art Achievement of Children in the Upper-Elementary Grades
In this research, the author has undertaken to investigate what relationship, if any, exists between academic achievement of the child in the upper-elementary grades and his achievement in both or either, of the two- and three-dimensional arts. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc130346/
A Method of Analyzing Linear Perspective for Presentation to Junior and Senior High School Students
The general purpose of this study is to develop a series of peep shows, or visual models, which will enable the young student to understand what the laws of perspective are, how they were found, and why his drawings will appear to have three dimensions if he follows the rules. The study is based upon a widely accepted idea--that it is much easier for most people to understand and remember a principle when they can actually see how it works. When rules are merely memorized, one is not assisted by reason, which is essential for useful retention. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc96896/
Standards for Evaluating Paintings by Children in the Primary Grades
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. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc163835/
Trends in Exhibitions in Four Texas Art Museums, 1940-1950
The problem of this thesis is to determine just what part the museum is playing in the cultural development of Texas. This study presents a detailed investigation of the exhibitions offered by four of Texas' major art museums for the period from 1940-1950. Each of the museums will be discussed separately and then compared so that an over-all picture can be achieved. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc96955/
The Value of Commercial Art as an Area of Instruction in the High School
For several years the author has considered the problem of commercial art instruction in high school. As a graduate art major, high-school art teacher, and free-lance artist in the advertising art field, it has been his opportunity to investigate and evaluate a program which offers more specialized training in commercial art than is now being offered in most of the secondary schools. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc163831/
Weaving with Materials Native to the Texas Gulf Coast
The present study explores some of the materials native to the Texas Gulf Coast between Corpus Christi and Beaumont relative to their adaptability to weaving. The problem is three-fold: first, to collect and identify the indigenous materials which might prove suitable for weaving; second, to determine the range of uses which each might serve in a weaving program; and third, to test further each selected specimen by making a sample into a finished woven product. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc97024/
