Art Workshop for Children is not just another book of straightforward art projects. The book's unique child-led approach provides a framework for cultivating creative thinking and encourages the wonder that comes when children are allowed to freely explore the creative process and their materials. As children work through these open-ended workshops, adults are guided on how to be facilitators who provide questions, encourage deep thinking, and help spark an excitement for discovery. Children explore basic materials and workshops that use minimal supplies, and then gradually add new materials to fill the art cabinets as well as new skills and more complex workshops. Most workshops are suitable to preschool-aged children, and each contains ideas for explorations and new twists to engage older or more experienced artists. Interspersed throughout are sidebar essays that introduce perspectives on mess-making, imperfection, the role of adult, collaborative art, and thoughts on the Reggio Emilia method, a self-guided teaching philosophy. These pieces underscore the value of art-making with children, and support the parent/teacher/care-giver on how to successfully lead, question, and navigate their children through the workshops to result in the fullest experiences.

Creativity is not simply a force that nourishes the arts: it is a way of thinking, a way of making use of the curriculum content taught in every classroom. In A Workshop of the Possible, Ruth Hubbard documents what children can do and how teachers can create classroom environments that promote children's many strengths. She describes ways to develop children's creativity in classrooms that respect their amazing abilities. This book is especially valuable for those teachers who want to integrate a child-centered curriculum beyond reading and writing; while grounded in holistic and constructivist literacy theory, it goes beyond language arts into math and science, into children conducting research and problem solving. What makes this book so valuable to teachers is its emphasis on application, with such features as: interviews with children in the midst of the creative process; detailed teaching strategies for fostering creativity; samples of students' work in science, math, social studies, and art to show the development of their thinking; a portfolio of color photos that shows what an innovative classroom can look like. Teachers will appreciate the numerous examples from inside classrooms, stressing issues that teachers and students confront and problems that arise and must be solved, even such nuts-and-bolts matters as classroom layouts and schedules.

Children S Understanding And Production Of Pictures Drawings And Art

This volume presents an innovative approach to the psychological study of children’s developing conceptions of pictures, drawings, and art.It brings together current theory and research on children’s developing understanding and production of pictures, drawings, and art. With contributions from leading international scholars, it is the first book to focus explicitly on children’s knowledge and interpretations of pictorial representations, including their understanding of the roles of the artist and the viewer. It addresses what children of different ages know about the nature of pictures as representations of the world, as intentional communications conceived of by artists, and as esthetic objects, as well as what children of different ages understand about the different ways to depict objects and scenes. The contributions discuss how children know what for them or for others is easy or difficult to draw, what they know about the strategies or aids for making a “good” drawing, the kinds of drawings and art they prefer, as well as their basis for making esthetic judgments and evaluating the quality of a drawing and individual style.Knowledge of how children think about pictures and of their metacognitive abilities will deepen our understanding of the drawings they produce and, more importantly, provide valuable insights into children’s comprehension of the many forms of graphic representation that are part of contemporary culture.
