Visual Arts in early childhood settings

Kia ora!

This blog has been established to share information, research and ideas about quality visual art education for young children in early childhood settings.

As a university lecturer and professional development facilitator in visual art education I often come across interesting research and examples of good visual arts practice which I believe need to be shared with others interested in young children's education.

Some of the information on this site has been developed by me but the site also provides an opportunity for early childhood teachers to showcase examples of their work with children in the visual arts. Some of the topics include:
  • The Wheke Project at Lyall Bay kindergarten
  • 100 Languages of Children
  • Artists in Residence TRCC conference April 2008
  • ecARTnz - a journal of professional practice
  • The lost streams of Wellington - a place based art project
  • Aotearoa Arts for Peace
  • Young children creating ephemeral art
  • Sustainable art practices in early childhood
  • 6th International Art in Early Childhood conference 2015 (Hong Kong)

I hope you find the blog useful and inspiring.

Hi I am a ECE teacher in Stratford and have been using ephemeral art using the black discs and natural resources for over a year now with great satisfaction and success for the tamariki. Yesterday I added some animals to the mix. The story telling and literacy escalated with the shark circling in the depths of the sea, the sheep talking on a walkie talkie for example. Speak again soon Yvonne Mestrom
