Additional Information

An inspiring and comprehensive guide to art education.

In this accessibly written guide for classroom and art teachers as well as parents, Nancy Beal shows how to release children's marvelous gifts of expression. Beal believes that children must first of all be comfortable with their materials. She focuses on six basic media: collage, drawing, painting, clay, printmaking, and construction. She gives practical consideration to all facets of a teacher's responsibility: how each material should be introduced; what supplies are best; how a classroom may be set up to support children's explorations; and how teachers may ask open-ed questions to stimulate personal and meaningful expression. Beal also discusses how to integrate art into social studies and how to make museum visits productive and fun. Each chapter includes a section specifically for parents on helping their children create art at home.

Beal has taught art to children for twenty-five years and is able to draw on a wealth of examples from her classroom. The Art of Teaching Art to Children is extensively illustrated with her students' art, visual proof of her gifts as an educator and art enthusiast.

This book stands out as a resource for art teachers because it is more than just ideas and directions for projects and crafts. The author shares her experiences and lessons-learned from 25 years of teaching art. As a newly hired art teacher for a private school, charged with creating my own curriculum, this book has become my jewel.
Ms. Beal presents a clearly focused method for teaching art to children with specific information about the developmental stages and abilities of elementary-aged children. She describes lessons and different types of media as they enable children to experience art. Her emphasis is on the experience, not the finished product. By controlling the environment through order and clearly defined limits, children can experience a process and master a technique without becoming confused or frustrated. She focuses on giving children the tools to make art a form of self-expression from the child outward, rather than from the adult in to the child. From her... Read more
This book focuses on introducing the basic art mediums (painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, clay, construction) for children ages 5 -10. The author emphasizes the importance of letting children work with these basic mediums repeatedly until they have gained mastery of the materials. Gradually they become more expressive in their work. The author encourages children to use their own life experience as a guide for making art; she discusses how to talk with children about their art, which is important to their own perceptions of their art. The book is written from the perspective of one person's experience as an art teacher and what she learned along the way. (I loved the photographs of the childrens' art.) The author adds tips for parents who want to do art at home with their kids. One quibble: she suggests letting children work in acrylic paint at home without mentioning that acrylics are not washable or nontoxic, unlike tempera paints. Many will enjoy reading this art...

I originally reviewed this book for my site and found it a wonderful tool in not just teaching but guiding my child to release some creativity - and mine too! I'm not an "artsy" parent by any means, but with this book giving you very easy explainations on tips, techniques, and use of art tools, setting the crayons and paper aside was much easier than I thought. That is one reason I chose this book, it captures both art teaching in school and at home, and allows the child to decide the project outcome based on his or her life instead of telling him or her to draw a yellow duck with a black outline; it tells your child anything is possible in art. The arthur, Nancy Beal, is great at giving parents tips on how to take the six basic art areas: collage, painting, drawing, printmaking, construction, and clay, and taking them from a school setting to a home "art corner".
