Additional Information

Exploring Studio Materials: Teaching Creative Art Making to Children is a transformative approach to teaching art in elementary and secondary schools. Based on the model of how real artists create their work, the text encourages teachers to work with the most common media and materials found in the Pre-K-12 curriculum. Hafeli provides a rich blend of real-life examples and suggested classroom activities in order to help fledgling art teachers learn how to implement creative arts programs that will produce exceptional results.

Rather than following a structure based on preconceived ideas, the book encourages experimental techniques with the materials that teachers commonly use in elementary and secondary classrooms. Therefore, teaching methodologies emerge from the activities themselves, rather than vice versa. Based on her own research, teaching, and contemporary approaches to arts education, this approach is an effective model for bringing artistic creativity into the school curriculum.

What a welcome shifting of the art education conversation this book is! In plain-speak and with many examples of contemporary art approaches (along with ties to research), readers are encouraged to (gasp!) MAKE ART. And while we’re at it, understand what studio thinking actually is, based on experience. Want to know what can happen when we stop dictating to our students what their artwork should look like and be about? Far from anything goes and certainly not the overly academized approaches of our recent past, Hafeli’s book should be read by everyone who teaches art to anyone, and everyone who prepares teachers for this kind of work.
This is a very good book.....
The only issue was it was sent very late....
A requested gift. My Daughter loved it.
