In the four project years, we developed teaching and learning programs for Grades 5-11 and published them in digital teachers’ manuals. The first series contain the programs of all modules developed for the respective age groups, the second series includes four modular textbooks in which, tried and tested educational programs are published in modular collections. Content foci of the modules and age groups for whom they were designed:

1. Visual communication: expression of personal, cultural, scientific or social messages through traditional and digital media for Grades 1-4 (ages 6-10) and 5-8 (ages 11-14);

2. Visual media in art education: integrated development of media and Information Technology literacy for Grades 5-8 (ages 11-14) and 9-12 (ages 15-18);

3. Environmental education and design: research and analysis of human needs, planning and construction, evaluation and presentation for Grades 5-8 (ages 11-14) and 9-12 (ages 15-18);

4. Contemporary visual art: perceiving the process and product, understanding the themes and genres through appreciation and analysis as well as creative and tasks for Grades 5-8 (ages 11-14) and 9-12 (ages 15-18)

These manuals contain detailed descriptions of the our themes, techniques and teaching methods. Samples of art works to be shown in appreciation classes and student work that demonstrates the results of one lesson or a project sequence help the reader better understand the innovative ideas of our piloting teachers. The content of the e-manuals are open for adaptation for art teachers.
