In the artistic process the artist verifies and exemplifies his or her perceptions and conception of their work. This paper discusses the model of the artistic process which describes the repertoire of perceptual clues that the artist develops. The rationale for the development of the model is for the art teacher to be able to explain in simple terms the relationship between perception and the making of art. The paper aims to acknowledge and emphasize the importance of perception to the making of art. It explains that the model is used by the author in a course on the teaching of art criticism, art history, and aesthetics. The paper has two parts. In the first part, background research (research and development activities in the Aesthetic Education Program in the 1970s which became the basis for the model are described. In the second part, the Model for the Artistic Process is outlined and its relationship to perception and instruction is discussed. Includes 10 notes and 2 diagrams. (BT)
