Art Experiences for Young Children.
Pile, Naomi F.
This book points out methods and materials that can be used by teachers helping preschoolers express their ideas and emotions through art. Hints on how to create atmosphere conducive to artwork and how to increase children's awareness of the visual world are given, along with hints on buying, using, and storing materials. Specific instructions are included (with line drawings and photographs) for painting, clay, drawing, college, wood sculpture, weaving, stitchery, and mobile construction projects. Also included are suggestions for age-appropriate art activities (at 3-, 4-, and 5-year-olds), four-color examples of children's artwork, and a materials list. (ST)
