How to Teach Art to Children, Paperback / softback Book

How to Teach Art to Children Paperback / softback


How to Teach Art to Children is designed to increase pupil awareness of the different kinds of art.

It gives pupils a wide range of experiences and helps them to appreciate the art around them.

Most importantly, it lets them know that there is no wrong way to do art. The activities in Part 1 introduce the seven basic elements of art - line, shape, colour, value (tones), texture and form.

Each section begins with a definition of the element and provides a series of art experiences that allow young artists to experiment with the element.

Experiences are labelled as large-group, small-group, partner or individual activities.

Each element is introduced with a large-group experience and then pupils' understanding is extended with small-group and independent projects.

All the experiences are designed to encourage pupils to explore materials and techniques, rather than to simply complete projects. There are 96 projects to undertake with step-by-step directions and full-colour examples. Part 2 of How to Teach Art to Children focuses on 24 famous artists and cultures and shows how they use the seven elements of art in different ways in their art.

The accompanying activities allow pupils to experience the style of each artist.
