Drawing with Children: A Creative Method for Adult Beginners, Too Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in a revised and expanded edition, this perennial best-seller is the definitive guide for parents and teachers on how to encourage drawing.

Mona Brookes' easy-to-follow, lesson-by-lesson approach to drawing has yielded astounding results with children of all ages and beginning adults. Her unique drawing program has created a revolution in the field of education and a sense of delight and pride among the thousands of students who have learned to draw through her "Monart Method."

This revised edition includes the following new materials:

  • Information on multiple intelligence and the seven ways to learn.

  • An inspirational chapter on helping children with learning problems

  • An integrated-studies chapter, with projects geared for reading, math, science, ESL, multicultural studies, and environmental awareness

  • A sixteen page color insert and hundreds of sample illustrations

This invaluable teaching aid not only guides readers through the basics, but also gives important advice on creating a nurturing environment in which self-expression and creativity can flourish. Both practical and enlightening, Drawing With Children inspires educators and parents to bring out the artist in all of us.

Synopsis:

This new edition includes two additional chapters explaining how to reach children with learning problems or special needs and how to incorporate drawing into other subjects, such as math and language.
