As a primary text for the courses in art methods for elementary education, or as a supplement to Discipline Based Art Education (DBAE) courses, Children and their Art provides a comprehensive resource for teaching art to children. Up-to-date discussions of child development in art, teaching methods, curriculum and evaluation, and professional practice include theory, practical application, suggested art activities. Features: * Recent research shows CHILDREN AND THEIR ART to be the leading text because it is comprehensive, provides a more aesthetically design, and because it is the most sensitive to current practice and theory. * Combines the classic depth and philosophical history of art education with a meticulous currency that continues to lead current practice. * Examples of children's art from around the world illustrate theory and application as it is discussed. New to this edition: * Drawing and painting, formerly one chapter, are now two separate chapters providing a stronger distinction between these two separate forms. * Coverage of special learners includes updated research. * Improved reproduction or artwork includes many new photographs and samples of children's art.
* New appendix offers recommendations for safer materials for use elementary students.
