Abstract: A change in the educational philosophy regarding what is best for the child's development has resulted in many new concepts of art education for the elementary school child. Formerly the regular classroom teacher had no special place in the formal art program for the elementary school child. It was the art teacher who instructed the child in his art activities, and it was he who was concerned primarily with the end-product and with development of the talented few into artists. In contrast to this situation, the elementary teacher now finds herself faced with the responsibility of teaching art to all of the elementary school children. Today the elementary teacher is a teacher of all things to all children, and for this reason she cannot be an expert or a specialist in all subjects. However, in this new role she must do her part in providing art experiences for all the children in order that they may develop into well-rounded individual.1
