Nurturing Creativity: The Role of Living Space in the First Years of Life.
Saunders, Minta M.; Keister, Mary Elizabeth
This proposal suggests researching the possibilities of offering experiences with surroundings--space, forms, colors, and materials--to many children at any early age. The design for such a setting would provide children with the unique advantage of developing within themselves a sympathy for basic forms, natural materials, and primary colors and demonstrate a total environment for very young children, with an indoor-outdoor living space to enhance their natural curiosity, exploratory needs, sensory perceptions, and creative-imaginative abilities. The need to research what constitutes an appropriate, enriching, and creative physical environment for the very young is emphasized, as well as demonstrating that the cost for such a setting would not be prohibitive. The research and design required would come within the full scope of the graduate program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. (JS)
