Artful Teaching:
A wonderful addition to any library, The Art of Teaching Art to Children focuses on process, not product. Author Nancy Beal shares ideas, insights, and tips with parents and teachers, including how to talk with children about their art, how to set up an art area in the home or school and how to introduce various materials to children. Those looking for recipe-style lesson plans will not find them here. However, what you will find is a lively book, written in a conversational style, filled to the brim with real, adaptable ideas from someone who has been there.
A lovely book.
