Impact of Early Art Experiences on Literacy Development (No. 297)


A compelling look at the link between children’s artwork and literacy development, this is an easy-to-read, indispensable primer for parents and educators alike. By providing a range of art experiences and alternative ways to teach children critical thinking and visual perception skills, the authors paint a vivid picture of the role that the visual arts play in early childhood development: “It is clear that a pedagogical shift must take place in our homes and schools if we are to meet the literacy needs of today’s young learners. This requires thinking ‘out of the box’ and coming up with new ways to deal with an old problem.”


The Impact of Early Art Experiences on Literacy Development lays the foundation for rethinking the way that we engage young children in early literacy learning. Includes over 60 step-by-step art activities designed to enhance early literacy.

“The book’s timely recognition of multiple definitions of literacy, including the contemporary importance of visual and digital literacies… recognizes both art making and responding to works of art as ways to BUILD THE LANGUAGE SKILLS THAT ALLOW WRITING AND READING TO EMERGE NATURALLY FROM CHILDREN’S EARLIEST MEANS OF SUSTAINED COMMUNICATION….”
—Christine Marmé Thompson, Professor of Art Education and Art Education Graduate Coordinator, Penn State School of Visual Art, University Park
