ECE273 :  Art Education in Preschool

This course presents students with evidence from research and best practices that shows how intentional teaching of art principles and techniques enhances children's abilities to use symbol systems such as letters and numerals. In addition, art experiences support the child's efforts to achieve emotional expression, self-reflection and mastery of fine motor tasks in ways that are naturally engaging. Well-planned creative experiences are key elements of any high quality program for young children.
