Description

For courses in Creative Arts in Early Childhood and Elementary Art Methods. This novel text engages future teachers in the processes of creativity to encourage creative growth and participation in their classrooms. It emphasizes process, rather than product, so teachers learn that once they tap into their own creativity they are better equipped to help children participate in the creative process. The author's goal is to shift readers from depending on prescribed activities and products to a more secure awareness of everyone's ability to participate in the creative process, regardless of the product.show more
