Journeys with young children in visual arts and drama

Christine Stevenson, Melanie Watt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter, we introduce the arts in general before discussing two art forms: visual arts - such as drawing, painting, and sculpture - and drama, one of the performing arts. Drawing on our experience in both art forms across the ages 0-8, we explore the how, where and why of children's art and drama. We discuss some developmental aspects of each art form, and demonstrate how we can make a difference by observing, enjoying and sustaining the journeys children take as they extend their knowledge of the world through these art forms.
