This well-organized, readable text provides the tools to develop rich, meaningful activities that integrate art into the total educational experience for young children. It specifically focuses on developmentally appropriate teaching practices best suited for use with children ages 1 1/2 through 8. Multiple intelligences theory, the Reggio Emilia experience, artistic development, the creative process, thematic teaching, and the project approach form the framework for designing safe, open-ended art experiences that develop the child's ability to look at, talk about, and create art. This text is designed for both those preparing to enter the early childhood fields as well as those who wish to incorporate art more fully into their early childhood programs.
