Relate your learning to practice

Remembering that the teachers at Tots Corner said they need time to research materials and find out what creative possibilities they engender, think about your experience and knowledge of different materials.

Share below some of the different materials that you introduce to your children.

Summary

The important points to take away from this part are:

  • Diverse collections of objects and materials can support children’s sensory perception, creativity and imagination within visual arts experiences. 
  • Open-ended materials and free access to a range of media encourage children to explore possibilities, create multiple meanings, and develop critical thinking skills. They enable children to follow their own ideas and inquiries.
