An Evaluation of Children's Choices According to Standards of Art in Useful Objects Displayed in Dallas Public Schools
How much art is projected into the home and community as a result of art experiences in the school is difficult to determine without some criterion as a standard for judgement. Based upon this premise, the author attempted, with the cooperation of the art committee of the Dallas Junior League, to test the aesthetic judgement of selected groups of children in the Dallas Public Schools by evaluating their reactions to an exhibition of common household articles currently available on the Dallas market. digital.library.unt.edu/ark:/67531/metadc83471/
