  2. Everyday Artists: Inquiry and Creativity in the Early Childhood Classroom

    For the young child, art is a way of solving problems, conceptualising the world and creating new possibilities. This book is about young children engaging in the art of world-making. Art, not in the traditional sense, but rather as constituting a powerful tool of everyday thinking. Everyday Artists addresses the disconnect that exists between the teaching of art and the way young children actually experience art. In doing so, this book questions commonly held notions and opens up exciting new possibilities for art education in the early childhood classroom. Bentley uses vignettes of children's everyday activities - from block building to clean-up to outdoor play - to help teachers identify and scaffold the genuine artistic practice of young children.
