The Art Teacher’s Book of Lists is a unique information source and timesaver for art teachers of all levels. It includes over 270 illustrated lists for developing instructional materials and planning lessons for elementary, middle and high school students. The Art Teacher’s Book of Lists helps the educator quickly find information about specific artists, art materials, art history, museums or disciplines. Some of the lists supply teacher background, others are to copy for student use, and many give new twists to traditional materials and techniques. For ease of use, the lists are organized into ten sections in a paperback book that folds flat for photocopying. Here is just a sampling of the lists you will find in each section — All About Art, Art History, The National Visual Arts Standards, Art Materials, Painting, Drawing & Printmaking, Sculpture, Architecture, Fine Arts & Folk Art, Technology & Art, "The Evolution of Photography", and "Museums Devoted to the Work of One Artist." The "Art History" section features 30 lists covering art history from prehistoric to contemporary times, including illustrated "Time Lines of Art History" and eight Art and Culture lists correlating art with government and culture, literature, science, music, and world events. There are also 42 lists for the art teacher’s personal use, from "The National Visual Arts Standards" and ways to assess students’ achievement, to "Measurements and Conversion Tables,” "Homemade Art Recipes" and "Things to do — One day lessons."
