Description

Teach children to use intuition and spontaneity to fuel their creativity and gain confidence in themselves. A must read for art teachers and parents. In Kids Play, Michele Cassou brings her unique method of creative instruction to children and shows parents how they can inspire their children to discover the world of art. Too often a child's creativity is stunted because he or she feels the need to produce something specific that will meet with the expectations of teachers and parents. Cassou explains that it is the creative process that should be encouraged in children, and criticism, evaluation, or even praise of the end result can actually be damaging. Kids Play uses examples from Cassou's own teaching experience to illustrate how helping children trust creative intuition instead of overloading them with technique will lead to self-expression and self-discovery. It will give them confidence not only in their art, but in themselves as well.show more
