Time to Create by Christie Burnett

Art experiences provide for a child’s development well beyond learning the names of colours or how to draw with a pencil. Well chosen art experiences provide for a child’s learning and development in so many ways – developing academic, language, social, emotional and physical skills.

Available now, Time to Create: Hands-On Explorations in Process Art for Young Children offers easy, accessible art activity ideas for families and educators to explore with young children. With an emphasis on process over product, each activity encourages discovery through a variety of art media, with sections dedicated to exploring;

  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Printmaking
  • Collage
  • Sculpture

  • Natural Materials.

As well as ideas for making art, each section includes information for adults supporting children’s learning as they create, and tools for seeing and talking with children about art.
