The Arts, Young Children, and Learning Summary

The Arts, Young Children, and Learning by WRIGHT

This text provides an overview of current philosophies, theories and practices in early childhood arts education, with many engaging examples of how children learn and how adults can enhance this learning.

The Arts, Young Children, and Learning presents how children learn through the arts and how adults play an important role in assisting this learning.

This text is not a cookbook of activities. The purpose is to delve deeper into the topics and to provide the reader with both a theoretical and philosophical understanding of the importance of the arts in young children's lives, and the knowledge and confidence to apply this understanding in a variety of learning contexts.

It focuses on important principles that draw on current research and international examples of best practices. Due to the breadth and depth of content this approach could be relevant at an introductory or graduate level. In addition, the content is relevant to students across a range of course (e.g., education, the arts, developmental psychology) and within course subjects (e.g. curriculum, development, music, dance, drama, art, integration, culture, learning, social constructed learning).
