Problems in Primary Art Education: Some Reflections on the Need for a New Approach in the Early Years.
Holt, David
International Journal of Early Years Education, v5 n2 p93-100 Jun 1997
Considers causes for loss of confidence suffered by older primary children with regard to art, and identifies the passive nature of early arts teaching as a significant element. Suggests this passive approach derives from logistical problems in early childhood classrooms and, more importantly, from a misguided notion of the nature and purpose of children's art which has dominated practice.
