ART & CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT FOR YOUNG CHILDREN, 8th Edition, is a comprehensive, must-have resource for implementing a developmentally appropriate art program. Written for pre-service and in-service early childhood professionals in child care, preschool, and kindergarten through third grade settings, the text takes a child-directed approach to art education. Blending theory and research with practical applications, this book discusses important topics and issues related to creative experience, such as art and the developing child, special needs and diversity, brain research, and children's artistic development. Also discussed are planning, developing, implementing, and assessing art along with strategies for integrating art across the curriculum. The updated Eighth Edition gives greater emphasis to professional standards with NAEYC, DAP, and NAEA standards integrated throughout the text.
"An incredible book to encourage students to tap into their own creativity to understand how it feels. . . . It is an indispensible resource that will be used over and over again."
— Patricia Clark, University of Maine, Augusta
