    This book is a teacher's manual that is designed for use in kindergarten and first grade 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 the students.

    Behold the Beauty is a treatment of art education from a Reformed, Calvinistic viewpoint. The lessons teach the elements of art: line, shape, texture, color, 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.

    Many children of all ages lack the specific motor abilities, visual perception and tactile awareness that are prerequisites for formal learning. Educators are aware of the fact that many of our teaching/learning experiences are oriented towards the development of the child's left brain, which primarily controls his language acquisition. It is often difficult to find materials or activities that focus on the development of the child's right brain, which controls his visual perception and memory. This series of Line Design books was created to promote the student's growth in this area. Each book is developmentally sequenced and builds upon previously learned skills. Twenty activities and answer keys are provided in each book. Reproducible. Grades 4-7.
