ECE 211 - Creative Art for Young Children


This course will give students the knowledge and tools needed to develop rich, meaningful activities that integrate art into the early childhood curriculum. This course will benefit early childhood professionals currently working with children ages one through eight, as well as those new to the field. Emphasis is on developmentally appropriate practices and designing safe, open-ended art experiences and activities. Students will explore a variety of art mediums appropriate for young children, including: drawing, collage, painting, play-dough and clay, printmaking, fiber art, sculpture, group art and art for dramatic play. Other topics include: children’s artistic development; the creative process; child-centered and child-directed activities; thematic teaching; and integrating art with language arts, music, science, math and social studies. Offered winter semester only.
NOTE: Students may clock hours of formal child care training and education toward completion of the CDA credential, the Michigan Department of Education paraprofessional requirements and child care licensing requirements for Michigan.
