Teaching art for the non-art teacher Aug 6, 2008
Anne Pelo is such a great mentor. This book is wonderful! It has inspired me to think about art as an experience rather an activity. This is what is meant by process, not product art. I wish I had this book when I first started teaching! This book has given me the confidence to teach children how to use many types of art medium, use art tools correctly and confidently, and clean-up with ease. And each chapter has detailed, Reggio-inspired ways of documenting art practices with young children.
Exceptional Art Resource Mar 27, 2008
This book is an exceptional resource for those just beginning to offer a creative art program in their school, or for those experienced in offering creative arts who want some new insights to add to their program! This book is NOT a guide to arts and crafts, it is far more than that. It truly draws on the philosophies of Reggio Emilia and the concept of using creative art as a form of self expression, but these concepts are presented in such a way that even an educator with no prior knowledge of Reggio Emilia could implement the program successfully. It includes descriptions of various art activities (including watercolors, tempera paint, clay, and more), materials lists, and instructions for clean up, but even more valuable to me were the guides to conversing with children as they worked in an engaging, but non-directive manner. A must-have book for anyone interested in offering children creative art opportunities!
