This book is a teacher's manual that is designed for use with children
ages 4-6 and can easily be used in a homeschool situation. Often
teachers express a lack of confidence in teaching art, considering
themselves untrained or untalented in this area. This curriculum was
proposed exactly for this purpose: to give teachers direction in this
often-intimidating subject. The lessons do not assume prior knowledge of
art, so the teachers can learn the elements and principles along with
Behold the Beauty is a treatment of art education from a
Reformed, Calvinistic viewpoint. The lessons teach the elements of art:
line, shape, texture, colour, value, and form and include instruction
in putting these elements together. For each grade, there are twelve
lessons, which are divided into six main subheads: Objective, Supplies,
Vocabulary, Introduction, Directions and Variations. The book also
includes student worksheets which can be copied.
The author, Connie Meyer, is married and the mother of four children.
She has had a lifelong passion for good art and has an art education
degree from Calvin College. She has led teacher seminars on art
education and is a frequent author of articles in the Beacon Lights
magazine, a young adult magazine.
