The Story in the Picture: Inquiry and Artmaking with Young Children (No. 309)
CHRISTINE MULCAHEY, Foreword by MAXINE GREENE
This book looks at the work of a variety of artists and demonstrates that using fine art reproductions in the early childhood curriculum allows children to construct their own meanings, teaches diversity, fosters thinking skills, and encourages storytelling. The author, a professor at Rhode Island College and a preK-5 art specialist, includes lesson ideas, examples of activities, and photographs of children working and interacting with one another and with works of art. Based on the NAEYC and NAEA standards, this educator-friendly resource provides: numerous examples of open-ended arts experiences using reproductions of fine art from many different genres, periods, cultures, and sources; art concepts to be used with children according to their developmental readiness; and easy-to-implement lesson ideas designed to encourage educators to create their own to fit in with their regular early childhood curriculum. Co-published with Teachers College Press.
120 pgs. (2009) ISBN 0-8077-5007-7

“This book has the capacity to have a profound impact on how art is viewed by educators by CHANGING THE ART EXPERIENCE FROM ONE OF INSIGNIFICANCE TO ONE THAT CONTRIBUTES GREATLY to the cognitive growth of the child.“
—Sharon Shaffer, PhD, Executive Director, Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center, Washington, DC
