Primary, Elementary and Middle
Places and Spaces in Art is a unique interdisciplinary resource for art specialist and classroom teachers. In this introductory program, the concepts of place and space are taught as they relate to where people meet, play, work and live, as well as the making of art. Students are introduced to architecture and landscape design in visual art and in their community. The built environment is presented as subject matter for artists and as an artistic mode that deals with the design of interior and exterior spaces. Using Places and Spaces, students will better understand their role as knowledgeable citizens and come to appreciate our rich heritage of environmental design.
