Trying to figure out the right time, the right words, the right program and the right environment to nurture a child's development while juggling work, home and carpools is daunting. Teaching Art to Children, The Marvegos Way provides parents and art educators with a roadmap to follow in assisting children to be self-confident, self-directed and independent art-makers and to be and express who they are in their generation. This book shows the way through a series of anecdotes, pictures of students at work and colored photographs of artwork to illustrate the results of this life-altering art program. The goal of The Marvegos is to increase each child's self-confidence as they discover and develop their own art-making style. Creativity is inspired. It cannot be taught. The Marvegos believes that entrusting children with making creative choices builds their confidence and engages their minds in ways other forms of learning do not. The Marvegos uses art-making to guide children to build awareness of things outside of themselves and provides a program of art-making that involves solving problems, making decisions, using resources, handling disappointments, taking risks, enjoying success and adapting to change.

From the creator of the bestselling Anti-Coloring Book series with more than 600,000 copies sold, a new parenting guide to encouraging creativity in preschool-age children Young at Art is the first and only comprehensive book for the general audience about the nature, value and impact of art on very young children. Directed towards parents and educators of one to five year olds, Susan Striker explains why children's art is not a frill, but the very foundation upon which all later fundamental skills are built. She drives home the idea that encouraging children's artistic growth will have beneficial effects on all other aspects of their emotional and intellectual development. At the core of this practical guide is the understanding that art is an important tool in teaching young children crucial concepts related to self-expression, reading and writing. As opposed to more structured exercises, such as coloring on dittos and underlining pictures in workbooks, Striker stresses that scribbling and free drawing experiments are the most important art activities a child can engage in; they better prepare children to read independently as they grow. Young at Art provides descriptions for age-appropriate art activities, tips for carrying them out safely, and helps parents recognize what a child's art work should look like at each stage of development. With Young at Art, parents will develop realistic expectations of their children's work, learn how to speak to their children about their art, and facilitate skills well beyond their creativity that will benefit children.
