While the visual and performing arts are powerful curricular companions to early STEM experiences, educators may not have the tools and resources to introduce art beyond painting and drawing. Creative Investigations in Early Art provides them with an inquisitive, explorative approach to boost young learners’ creativity and critical-thinking, communication, and problem-solving skills through artistic expression.

Each chapter provides educators with practical ideas for intentionally fostering young children’s hands-on, minds-on explorations connecting the following areas of the creative arts to STEM:

  • Dramatic Arts
  • Visual Arts

“Creative Investigations in Early Art provides lots of ideas, related children's books, and great open ended questions to ask young children integrating the arts and STEM. The book explores many ideas from loose parts to planning, planting, and caring for a garden! Ideas include music and movement, dramatic and visual arts, and connecting artists and artworks. Vignettes, lesson ideas and materials are helpful resources.”
