ABOUT THE 'SMART READS for Kids' BOOK SERIES“Love Art, Love Learning”Welcome to the 'SMART READS for Kids' book series. Designed to expand and inspire young minds; this is a range of short educational books for children aged seven and over. These books do much more than just teach children about Art and Artists. They also act as a gateway to a much broader general knowledge base. Although one Artist's life and major works are always the central theme, wider learning is encouraged in the following ways:• Geography. When locations relevant to the Artist's life are mentioned they are always accompanied by a colourful, child-friendly map so that the opportunity to learn some world geography does not pass the young reader by.• History. If the Artist's actions or inspirations were based on the current affairs of the day then a snippet of history is explained in simple terms than can be easily understood by children.• Vocabulary. In general the vocabulary is uncomplicated. However, a manageable number of longer words are intentionally introduced and then reused in each book. These are always demarked by bright bold colours and are accompanied by a clear definition and pronunciation. There is also a Glossary at the end.• Maths. At least one maths sentence, for example a calculation of the Artist's age or how many years ago they were born, is included in each book. A column subtraction sum to accompany the statement is always laid out somewhere nearby. • Concentration. Each book is written in the friendly first person and a trail of footprints running through it always leads to a cute cartoon animal at the end. The author sometimes asks questions of the young reader (and the final section is always a quiz). These features both keep children engaged in the book and encourage them to form their own opinions. There is intentionally a high ratio of images to text.• Other Artists. No artist lives in isolation; they are invariably influenced by their peers and those that have come before them. Therefore each book introduces a select few new artist's names. In this way the child's knowledge horizon of Art History is gently expanded.ABOUT BOOK NO. 1: JUNIOR VINCENT VAN GOGHGeographical Locations Referenced: The Netherlands, The Dutch Brabant, Belgium, Antwerp, France, Paris and Arles.Paintings: 17 in total including: Sunflowers, The Starry Night, Wheat Field with Cypresses, The Church at Auvers, Irises, Noon Rest From Work, The Yellow House, The Night Café, The Potato Eaters and two self-portraits.Vocabulary Defined: Inspired, Passionate, Mental illness, Expressionism, Dutch, Peasants, Romantic, Sympathy, Realism, Professional, Palette, Complementary, Succession and Ironic.New Artists Introduced: Rembrandt and Paul Gauguin.Broader topics addressed: Mental illness and poverty.Number of Words: 2200.OTHER BOOKS IN THE 'SMART READS for kids' SERIES:'Junior Leonardo da Vinci''SMART READS for Kids' adventure story “What do you do in a Drawing Room?”' [Kindle only]'Learn 20 French Words with Junior Claude Monet' [Kindle only]'Junior Edgar Degas' [Kindle only]FOR FREE ACTIVITIES TO ACCOMPANY THESE BOOKS VISIT:

The Handbook of Research and Policy in Art Education marks a milestone in the field of art education. Sponsored by the National Art Education Association and assembled by an internationally known group of art educators, this 36-chapter handbook provides an overview of the remarkable progress that has characterized this field in recent decades. Organized into six sections, it profiles and integrates the following elements of this rapidly emerging field: history, policy, learning, curriculum and instruction, assessment, and competing perspectives. Because the scholarly foundations of art education are relatively new and loosely coupled, this handbook provides researchers, students, and policymakers (both inside and outside the field) an invaluable snapshot of its current boundaries and rapidly growing content. In a nutshell, it provides much needed definition and intellectual respectability to a field that as recently as 1960 was more firmly rooted in the world of arts and crafts than in scholarly research.

As the authors of Free Art Learning With Kids, our motto is: Children's Creativity Should Definitely Not Get Restricted!"A child has a hundred languages but gets deprieved of 99!" Famous Italian Educator and Poet Loris MalaguzziSonja & Esin: "Children's art is one of the unique primeval languages symbolizing thoughts and feelings and hereby reflecting the deeply original and universal inner nature of the children aound us. These reflections, we believe, can be found within the direct and friendly manner in which children approach and handle materials. And also as embedded in the child's concrete visualizations of linear language into 3-dimensional forms is yet another one of these hundred languages. In these there is something that has to do with origin, birth and budding life; a joy of living and vitality; the same kind of power that makes plants and animals grow and develop. Man's search and research through cycles of civilizations will, hopefully, aid us through whatever future challenges we meet in our World."These are some of the many messages in Free Art Learning With Kids, which is a fresh and inspiring book on art pedagogy for preschool aged children, written by two Swedish - Turkish artists and art educators. Sonja has spent 57 years of her life together with children and art and Esin has similar experiences since about 20 years. Now they want to share their stand points and colorful experiences with the World."Our mission with this book: When children through the magic power of art get chances to freely discover and explore their creative inner resources by means of self-expression, we believe in a broad sense, that art making has the potential of fostering growth of what is individual in each child (emotion, thought, and understanding). At the same time, the natural processes of psychic and physical maturing of the child will come to be integrated with the surrounding world so that there will be harmony and balance in their interrelation.Let's consider the scientifically proven fact that as much as 90% of children's personalities get completed at the age of 6! Very much can and, according to Sonja's and Esin's understanding, should be done in order to support processes of developing self confidence and individual growth in children while their brains are most receptive.This introduction book wil be followed by a series of instruction books that will, in the end, form a library containing guidelines on how to easily use numerous materials and how to apply various different techniques to achieve satisfactory levels of self expression.Though it would be wonderful if one could have chance to get support from professionals, during early years of childhood, Sonja and Esin believe that it is not necessary for us to be professional art teachers. Adults' love and and care for children they are close to is essential! Readers will find this Free Art Learning "library basics" full of fun and designed in an easily comprehensible interactive kind of communication.
