Marjorie and Brent Wilson’s classic guide for teachers and parents is now expanded and updated!
Using hundreds of real examples, this 2010 version breaks children’s art into three types. The first is typified by children drawing on their own, influenced by peers and popular culture. The second type is characterized by the teacher initiating playful and game-like drawing. The third type happens when adults and kids draw together to develop new visual worlds.
Teaching Children to Draw offer suggestions to help children expand their artistic abilities and imagination, including creating narrative drawings about themselves, their families, their friends, and their lives. The book contains 250 black & white illustrations.
Professors Marjorie and Brent Wilson have taught art at all levels of education and lectured internationally on children’s art. They have written numerous articles and research reports as well as books.
