GROWING ARTISTS: TEACHING THE ARTS TO YOUNG CHILDREN, 5th Edition, provides early childhood educators with the theoretical framework, current brain research, and background knowledge needed to design creative arts activities for young children from infancy through the primary grades. Beautifully illustrated with childrena€™s artwork, it features a wealth of child-tested dramatic arts, music, dance, and visual art activities that nurture childrena€™s creativity. The creation of a safe, sensory-appealing arts program in which works created by diverse peoples and cultures are valued is emphasized throughout. Focus is also placed on where arts activities are integrated into a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Childrena€™s literature about the arts, and ideas for adapting arts activities for children with special needs, are integrated into each chapter. Chapters cover the creative process; artistic, aesthetic, and sensory development; anti-bias; and community-building arts activities. Emergent curriculum, thematic teaching, the project approach, and art appreciation activities are also included. Examples of teaching in action model how to be an enthusiastic and effective teacher of the arts process. This book provides a rich resource of ideas and approaches that will inspire all those who work with young children to explore the arts process with them.
