Parents as Partners in Art Education Enrichment
Hansen, Laurie
Young Children, v63 n5 p90-95 Sep 2008
The author describes a parent art program, how it works, and ways to implement it. She emphasizes the strengths of parent programs as a way to support and enrich existing arts education, not as a replacement. Hansen describes the art kit--the adult's teaching resource--and the basic four-part process: presentation, demonstration, an art activity, and a dialogue/discussion with children. In sidebars and lists, she suggests books and Internet art research resources; tells how to create art kits and what they contain; gives principles of design; and defines art vocabulary.
