Abstract:
There has been very little research in the area of art as therapy with respect to curriculum for the art room. In-service and pre-service teachers are not trained, or prepared, to talk about death and losses with their students. This study surveyed pre-service teachers attitudes toward lesson plans for children about loss. The idea of using art as a creative way to mourn or grieve is an innovative idea. Future research must be conducted to determine if art specialists, in-service teachers, parents, and school administration would agree that curriculum on loss for use by an art specialist or regular classroom teacher would be helpful when presented as part of a death education curriculum.
