The Creativity Handbook: A Visual Arts Guide for Parents and Teachers.
Children are born artists, and artistic talent emerges from the interplay of proclivity, cultural enrichment, and nurturance. Intended to demystify art for parents and teachers and to help them understand what the art experience is like for the child or adolescent, this book discusses visual art concepts in simple terms and presents art as a vehicle for an educationally transformative experience. The book also offers ideas and projects to help adults support the authentic vision of the child/adolescent throughout all the stages of artistic development. The chapters cover the art experience, creativity and the child, stages of artistic development, keeping creativity alive, art projects for children ages 2 to 12, and art projects for adolescents ages 12 to 17. Also provided are an appendix on art materials and safety information and a glossary. (HTH)
