Art for the Fun of It: A Guide for Teaching Young Children Reviews
As a beginning art educator I found this book to be extremely useful. It contains many tips for art room materials and practices that could only be learned through years of experience. Not only does Peggy Davison cover the very practical side of art education but also she explains many of the latest philosophies and strategies used in this area without the book becoming tedious reading. Any art educator, regular classroom teacher, or home-schooling parent would be wise to read this book if they are serious about the quality and efficiency of their art program. It is an easy and interesting read and one that will be referred to many times for information. This is a book I will keep handy in my classroom.
Wonderful book! I teach three- year- olds, and I found it very useful not only for ideas for projects, but also as a guide to understanding the creative process of the child.
The previous reviewer got it 100%!
