This manual focuses on the visual arts and age appropriate methods for preschoolers. Teaching objectives for preschoolers would include encouraging a child to plan and work independently to create their own art representations, encouraging them to also explore and describe their art choices. In addition a child should be able to recognize and describe various art forms (photographs, sculpture, paintings). Though this manual was written primary for preschoolers in mind with very little adaptation it could easily be used in all primary grades.
An attempt was made to make this resource a tool for teachers, even those who do not consider themselves to be artists, to be art teachers. Any one can be an artist, anyone with a desire to create and explore. Hopefully this book will motivate and encourage creative thinking, in teacher and student alike, and revolutionize how art is taught to children within the preschool environment.
Scope of Instruction included, and instructions for all open-ended art projects.
