Overview

This book is an inspiration. The author, David Nicholls, has taught art for almost two decades at a school for children with physical disabilities, working with them from nursery to school-leaving age. His conviction that their artistic creativity was inhibited only by physical limitation is more than justified by the evidence he puts before us here. Through using computers, the pupils have produced exciting and often brilliant work, some of it shown on these pages.

David Nicholls describes the techniques he has employed, with a clarity and detail that will be immediately helpful to teachers using computers in art classes in schools Equally significant, however, is his own approach - both to creativity itself and to the young people who have had the good fortune to be taught by him.

Pooling Ideas has much to say to teachers of art in schools and anyone working with children and young people who have special educational needs.
