“The Drawing Path for Children” written by Bob Steele

“The Drawing Path for Children” written by Bob Steele is available as an E-Book on Amazon.com  The Drawing Path for Children demonstrates the importance of drawing as a spontaneous language for children. It contains a balance of theory and practice for ‘teaching’ drawing to children and young people from preschool to high school. Included are practical suggestions for conducting a daily draw at home and school, and for integrating drawing into the school curriculum in areas such as science, social studies, language arts and art. This book merges 80 examples of children’s drawing with anecdotes and strategies from teachers and parents all framed by the insights of master educator and artist, Bob Steele. Focused on the significant early learning reflected in children’s authentic drawing practices, Steele guides parents and teachers in recognizing and nurturing authentic drawing as a vehicle for empathy, creative self-expression, and cognitive growth. Those who purchase the book should know that proceeds are being generously given to InSEA and CSEA by Bob Steele, a long time advocate for children and art and an honorary lifetime member of InSEA. All of us are deeply grateful to Bob for his generosity. This is one way to advocate for drawing in education while at the same time raising funds for art education organizations who are committed to advocating for arts education. Please share this information with all of your art education, early childhood and drawing oriented friends!
