Summary

This well-organized, readable book provides the tools to develop rich, meaningful activities that integrate art into the educational experience for children ages 1 ½ through 8. It is based on up-to-date research in cognitive, creative and artistic development, multiple intelligences theory, and the Reggio Emilia experience. Special attention is given to integrating art with language arts, science, math, social studies, and music and movement using thematic teaching and the project approach. Drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber art, clay, collage, puppets, masks, blocks, constructions, papier maché, and computer art are all included. This creative book offers a framework for designing safe, open-ended art experiences that develop the child's ability to look at, talk about, and create art.
