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.

This book provides teachers with the skills, and freedom, to design rich and open–ended art experiences for young children. The author demonstrates that using fine art reproductions in the early childhood curriculum allows children to construct their own meanings, teaches diversity, fosters thinking skills, and encourages storytelling. Based on the NAEYC and NAEA standards, this teacher–friendly resource includes lesson ideas, examples of activities, and photographs of children. “The Story in the Picture has the capacity to have a profound impact on how art is viewed by educators by changing the art experience from one of insignificance to one that contributes greatly to the cognitive growth of the child.” —Sharon Shaffer, Executive Director, Smithsonian Early Enrichment Center “Christine Mulcahey’s watchwords are freedom, creativity, and imagination. . . . One can almost feel perspectives opening on her side of the looking glass as children’s voices break through the hush, and we come in touch with the unexpected.” —From the Foreword by Maxine Greene, Teachers College, Columbia University “Early childhood teachers will find this well–written, engaging, and easy–to–read book to be a gift! It makes sense of current research on early childhood and art and speaks to many common insecurities with easy–to–implement suggestions for the classroom.” —Cathy Topal, Smith College “In the tradition of Geraldine Dimondstein and W. Lambert Brittain, Christine Mulcahey shares wise counsel gleaned from conversations with young children about the art they make and the art that they encounter in richly varied preschool programs. —Christine Marmé Thompson, Pennsylvania State University
