Loving the Arts by John L. Silva. "Aesthetics..., the philosophy dealing with the principles of beauty and artistic taste. The objective is to develop artistic perception in teachers, who in turn, will develop in students a love for nature, their heritage, and the visual arts. Students will find patterns in their environment and identify what constitutes beauty and value, emphasizing color, line, shape/form and texture. Instilling these basic elements will develop in students a sense of aesthetics."
