How to Talk to Children About Art
Do you find yourself stumped for words when talking about art? Do you wonder how to get children interested in art? Françoise Barbe-Gall has created How to Talk to Children About Art to support you through the task and turn it into a wonderful adventure.
It doesn't matter if you know little about art, or are more interest in sports or sciences. If you trust your own eyes, you can allow children to 'enter' a picture as if they owned the world it depicts. You will learn how to help the most impatient ones to express their intuition, and how to stimulate both their imaginations and analytical minds.
Thirty artworks from a variety of galleries will guide you from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century, using plain language, addressing the various age groups, 5-7 year olds, 8-10 year olds, and 11-13 year olds.
