art as dialogue drawing

Institute for Early Childhood Studies

Visual art is a vehicle for communication and can prompt important dialogue.  

The 8th International Art in Early Childhood conference aims to encourage dialogue among early childhood educators by opening up new opportunities for discussion about the role of visual art and aesthetics education in young children’s lives.

Participants and presenters are encouraged to consider:

  • How the visual arts can foster young children’s exploration of the people, places, things and experiences that are meaningful to them.
  • How the visual arts contribute to the development of young children’s working theories, stories, and understandings about the world.
  • How children’s cultural citizenship can be fostered through their experiences and (re)interpretations of significant rituals, festivals, and ceremonies in their own culture, as well as those of others, through visual art learning experiences.
  • How we can support young children’s access to a nation’s art taonga (treasures) that are exhibited in museums and galleries.

第八届国际早期儿童艺术教育研讨会

2019年1月24日至27日

新西兰惠灵顿维多利亚大学

视觉艺术是沟通的载体,可以激发重要的对话。

第八届国际早期儿童艺术教育研讨会旨在通过探讨视觉艺术和美学教育在儿童生活中的作用来促进和鼓励儿童教育工作者之间的交流。

鼓励参会者思考:

视觉艺术可以促进儿童探索人、地方、物品以及对他们来说有意义的经验?

视觉艺术可以如何促进儿童发展自己的理论、故事和对世界的理解?

儿童的文化公民意识可以如何通过体验和(重新)解读自己所属文化以及其他文化中的重要风俗、节日和仪式,通过与视觉艺术相关的学习经验来培育?

我们可以如何支持儿童与保存在博物馆和美术馆里的国家级艺术瑰宝进行亲密接触?
