Overview

Incorporate inquiry-based practices into your early childhood classroom or family child care program. Inspired by an approach to teaching and learning born in Reggio Emilia, Italy, The Language of Art emphasizes investigation anchored by drawing, painting, and other art activities. It provides:

advice on setting up a studio space for art and inquiry
studio explorations designed to give children a basic fluency in art
suggestions for documenting children's developing fluency with art media and its use in inquiry
guidelines for using children's new-found fluency as a tool for investigation.

Even if you use a space not designed specifically for art instruction or even for an early childhood program, The Language of Art shows how you can simply start where you are.
