Editorial Reviews


"George Szekely is simply a master at this topic – unparalleled in the field of art education. Play is a refreshing topic – so important in child developmental theory as described by Vygotsky and Piaget – that such a text could very well promote a dialogue about the destructive qualities of policies that emphasize ‘drill and kill.’ This book could easily reignite a dialogue in both the field of art education and general education about the value of imagination."

R. Barry Shauck, Boston University, USA

"George Szekely offers a unique and useful guide to explore connections between play and art making encouraging teachers to get in touch with themselves as artists and apply what they know about play through art as teachers."

Rikki Asher, Queens College, City University of New York, USA

"Play and Creativity in Art Teaching is all about implementing Picasso's well known statement: ‘Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.’ Whereas Picasso merely hints at a direction, George Szekely draws us a detailed map we can use to guide young artists to meaningful life-sustaining Art."

Frank Asch, children’s book author and illustrator

"Come sit on the floor with George Szekely―a teacher of teachers, an enthusiastic student of children’s art, and a great mentor to all who would keep the joy of play in their lives. This delightful book brings together his best thoughts for parents and teachers to support play, learning, and creativity for their children and students."

Katherine Douglas, co-founder of Teaching for Artistic Behavior (TAB) and art teacher for 37 years
