Summary

Art and Creative Development for Young Children, 6th Edition, has been completely revised to include an in-depth discussion of technology to aid teachers in understanding the role technology can play in children's visual art appreciation and production. Guidelines for establishing an inclusive art program in classrooms for young children are included for early childhood professionals. Activities and recipes make the text a valuable resource for in-service teachers.
