ECED 429 Art as Languages of Early Childhood

Consider children’s engagement in artistic and representational processes as a means of co-constructing knowledge. Challenge the assumption that children’s art is product-based and reframe the way we understand how the creative process contributes to learning and identity. Develop ways to facilitate creative expression and incorporate the arts into early childhood curriculum. Learn techniques for introducing children to drawing, painting, clay, wire, three-dimensional and digital media as tools for exploring ideas and creating theories.
