Approach Art Beyond Painting and Drawing

While the visual and performing arts are powerful curricular companions to early STEM experiences, educators may not have the tools and resources to introduce art beyond painting and drawing. Creative Investigations in Early Art provides them with an inquisitive, explorative approach to boost young learners’ creativity and critical-thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills through artistic expression.

Each chapter provides educators with practical ideas for intentionally fostering young children’s hands-on, minds-on explorations connecting the following areas of the creative arts to STEM:

  • Music and Movement
  • Dramatic Arts
  • Visual Arts
  • Artists and Artworks
