Aimed at parents and caregivers, this book explores the meaning and value of drawing for youngsters, from toddlers aged two to preadolescents aged twelve. Informed by psychology and practical teaching with children, it guides readers through the progressive stages and characteristics of drawing development as children change mentally, physically, socially, emotionally, and creatively. It offers tips to encourage children to express their ideas visually and recommends age-appropriate art materials, workspaces, and different media. It also gives suggestions for making a museum visit more meaningful--not to mention more fun--for both parents and kids. Packed with delightful examples of children's art, Children Draw is an essential book for parents interested in their child's art activities.
