ECE webinar: Designing play spaces for children using contemporary art

Children’s play with materials, such as cardboard, wood and paint, is important as it allows them to learn in divergent ways and interact with the world through their senses.

In this webinar, Dr. Louisa Penfold discusses why materials and aesthetics are important in children’s learning today, and offers strategies for designing children’s play spaces based on contemporary art practices.

You can find out more about Louisa and her work on her website Art Play Children Learning.

The key ideas discussed in this webinar are shared in a short insight article.
