The Curriculum of the Horace Mann Elementary School--English, Nature-Study, Industrial Arts, Household Arts, Fine Arts, Physical Education: Fine Arts


by Henry Carr Pearson - 1913

We believe the love of the beautiful to be as instinctive as any emotion, " that art is an expression of energy in terms of beauty" (A. W. Dow), "an artist one who gives form to a beautiful conception" (C. H. Caffin), and that "a child has the right to five inheritances—religious, literary, scientific, aesthetic, and institutional" (N. M. Butler). Consequently, the aim of art in the curriculum is to aid in the general rounding out of the child's character by enriching and making useful the aesthetic side of his nature. This may be done through the development of appreciation by association with works of art in the original, lantern slides, and pictures; of critical judgment through comparison of good and poor work in class criticism; and of expression by problems in line, in light and dark, and in color.
