The Christian Heritage Art Program.

THE CHRISTIAN HERITAGE ART PROGRAM. Produced by Don Bosco Multimedia, 475 North Avenue, Box T, New Rochelle, New York 10802.

The title of this program makes it clear that it is primarily intended for use in parochial schools. Designed for grades one through eight, it is centered on four principles that the producers state are fundamental to a complete and balanced education: students learn best when their knowledge progresses from simple to complex ideas, they retain knowledge best from creative activities, they take most encouragement from peers, and Christian culture is better understood when seen in its progression from early and primitive forms to its present state.

Each of the 48 lessons articulated in this program involves students in viewing famous works of art, interpretive activities and hands-on art activities. They are contained in six grade level teacher's guides, each of which is supported by a filmstrip and audio-cassette. The class activities are proclaimed to be "fun, uncomplicated, inexpensive and tailored to students' abilities at every grade level." The materials in the program also feature student work. The grade specific lessons are organized on a scope and sequence format that encourages interdisciplinary applications of the program.

The well designed program is available in grade level milts for $150.00 each or $1,200 for the complete set of 8 units. It is also available for a 30-day review. For further information, or a review copy, write the producers.
