Welcome to ART Really Teaches

by First Stage Publishing Company on 05/31/18

ART is a guide that helps teachers or parents use art activities with young children's learning.  Below are educational quotes from the book by University Professors about the importance of ART:

Dr. Elliot Eisner- Professor Emeritus of Art and Education at Stanford University

Dr. Eisner tells us about the importance of using art activities in the early years in the intellectual, social, physical and emotional development of children.  The art materials and activities stimulate the senses in young children’s educational development. “Nothing is in the head that was not first in the hand.”

Dr. Violet Robinson - Professor Emeritus at San Francisco State

 All children can benefit from a variety of art experiences that enable them to learn and develop.  Small muscles, eye-hand coordination and dexterity are developed as they engage in physical rhythm and feel joy as they finger-paint, paint with deliberate strokes, or make repeated patterns.  "Art activities contribute to all aspects of a child’s development."
