LEWISVILLE, NC (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Open-ended art explorations provide young children with an excellent opportunity to be creative and original, to plan and test ideas, to wonder and discover, and to imagine that anything is possible.
Time to Create, a new book to be released by Gryphon House in May 2013, is filled with unique process art experiences that stimulate children’s senses and engage their imaginations through a variety of artistic mediums.
Rather than merely teaching children to name colors and to hold a pencil, the hands-on process art experiences in Time to Create encourage discovery through a variety of artistic expression, including drawing, painting, print making, collage, and sculpture.
With ideas for encouraging creativity, advice for choosing the right art project, and suggestions for minimizing the mess, parents and children will be on their way to fun-to-do art explorations in no time!
Author Christie Burnett is the writer and founder of the popular Australian parenting blog Childhood 101. She has worked as an early childhood educator for many years and is the mother of two young girls.
Time to Create: Hands-On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children (ISBN: 978-0-87659-418-6, 128 pages, $24.95) will be available in May 2013 from Gryphon House.
