Children as Authors, Children as Illustrators: The Whole Story.
This videotape, designed and written by Beth Olshansky, presents an innovative approach to integrating children's visual imagery into their writing process. This program is a record of classroom methods, detailing strong similarities between visual arts and language arts. It is designed as a video workshop for teachers with or without any previous art experience. The content of the program addresses such areas as preparing for lessons that interface drawing and writing activities, the exploration of texture and the making of textured paper, imagemaking in classrooms, steps toward publication and how to construct books. This well-produced and provocative videotape is accompanied by a resource guide which details all of the illustration techniques displayed in the video. The program is appropriate for a teacher's reference and staff development workshops, and can also be used to introduce students to unique ways to integrate their ideas and test their skills with a variety of art techniques.
