The Drawing Path for Children demonstrates the importance of drawing as a spontaneous language for children. It contains a balance of theory and practice for 'teaching' drawing to children and young people from preschool to high school. Included are practical suggestions for conducting a daily draw at home and school, and for integrating drawing into the school curriculum in areas such as science, social studies, language arts and art.
This book merges 80 examples of children's drawing with anecdotes and strategies from teachers and parents all framed by the insights of master educator and artist, Bob Steele. Focused on the significant early learning reflected in children's authentic drawing practices, Steele guides parents and teachers in recognizing and nurturing authentic drawing as a vehicle for empathy, creative self-expression, and cognitive growth.
