Valuing Children's Expression: A First Attempt at Displaying Preschool Art in an Early Childhood Centre
Itzkowitz, Selina
McGill Journal of Education, v48 n2 p425-434 2013
A local childcare centre embarks on a first-time project to exhibit preschool children's artworks, acknowledging the importance of art-based activities in the development of young children. In the planning and implementation of a successful afternoon event, the centre's children, along with parents, other family members, friends, and educators, were able to appreciate the variety of techniques and materials used to create the skillfully-planned exhibit. The author provides insights into the challenges of undertaking such an endeavor and makes recommendations to promote its success.
