Creative Art for Learning.
Karnes, Merle B.
The book presents a creative art program for preschool children that utilizes art as a vehicle to develop many desirable behaviors -- social, emotional, and intellectual. A total of 45 art activities are described, organized under the headings "Exploration--Seeing and Feeling" (including seeing and feeling different textures, and seeing repeating lines and shapes), "Painting and Drawing" (including painting on a transparent surface and drawing a picture with chalk), "Printmaking" (including making a vaseline monoprint and creating a picture from a printing plate), "Sculpture" (including making a junk sculpture and making a papier mache relief sculpture), and "Crafts/Mixed Media" (including making a scrap collage and making a paper bag puppet). Along with each activity description is included a list of materials needed, possible concepts to be learned, skills involved, time required, demonstration procedure, and suggested subjects for additional art activities.
