Make Room Monday #5 on Tuesday ~ Preschool Art

Since I have a lot of traffic on my blog this week, due the the Review Crew's current Blog Hop, I've decided to do a give away every day this week. Then I realized that Homeschool Creations is hosting their annual Curriculum Clean-Out linky party this week and I have to take advantage of that. So here's another one for you.

Today I'm offering up Preschool Art: It's the Process, Not the Product by MaryAnn Kohl. I'm sure you've heard of her amazing art books. I own several. I don't have any particular reason for wanting to get rid of this because I do like it. It's just that I am  using a couple of review items for art at the moment and I'm forcing myself to thin out my herd of books before we move.

About Preschool Art


Over 200 activities encourage children to explore and understand their world through art experiences that emphasize the process of art, not the product. The first chapter introduces basic art activities appropriate for children, while the subsequent chapters, which build on the basic activities in the first chapter, are divided into seasons. Activities are included for painting, drawing, collage, sculpture, and construction. Indexes organized by art medium and project name help teachers plan.

It's easy to get distracted by all the cutsie crafts out there that require mom to do most of the work so this is a good book to help avoid the cookie cutter projects.

Enter to Win!!!

Give away ends 8/6.  Good luck!!! And check out my other give away, Learning About God from A to Z, ends 8/5.

My children love to paint, but I'm not artistic by any means, and I'm always looking for ways to help foster their interest in art!
