Process Art for Early Childhood: Resource Round-Up
Process Art for Early Childhood is focused more on the act of making, experimenting, and discovering, rather than the art product itself. Children use exploration to discover new materials, techniques, and tools in an open-ended way that encourages critical thinking, problem-solving, and creative learning.
“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”
This is a Resource Round-Up that will help you get started in introducing your children or students to process-focused art.
