Editorial Reviews

Review

"This text is well rounded and appropriate for the creative arts course at our college. My reason for choosing it is it is very visual, summarizes the content well and touches more deeply on holistic education. For the most part, I am really impressed with the variety of activities as well as the list of materials developed to inspire the creative process." - Susan M. Baxter, M Ed., El Camino Community College, California

"I think this edition shows great enlightenment in all sections, including Creativity, Young Children as Artist, Art & Aesthetics, Providing Art Experiences, and Roles and Strategies. The layout of the chapters are appropriate for instruction and this text is user friendly. There is not anything missing that comes to my attention." - Audrey W. Beard, Ed.D., Jackson State University, Georgia

" I like the open-ended activities designed for toddlers, preschoolers, kindergartners and school-age children. I like that the activities (called "hint") are ideas, not step-by-step directions or a "recipe" approach to teaching art." - Nancy W. Wiltz, Ph.D., Towson University, Maryland

Format: Paperback
I took a class at the local junior college that required this book. This book was extremely useful and well organized. There are great ideas for any age. I also thought it was great how this book also included artists that you could relate different techniques to. Great book to have if you are thinking of going in to the teaching field.

I purchased this book for a class I am taking. This book is a good resource, and I plan to keep it after I've finished my class. It contains a lot of examples of projects that you can do with children of various ages. There is also an emphasis on safety and age appropriateness.

I first started reading the book as recommended by my baby's teacher at daycare. My baby is very creative with painting. After I began reading through it, I couldn't stop. It's really good.
