Art programming for young children today can be more than the traditional craft project that typically follows a storytime. This slideshow from Amy Koester, the acclaimed Show Me librarian, explains how to focus on the process as opposed to the product when including art as part of a STEAM program for preschool children.
The Pennsylvania One Book: Every Young Child program provides many resources for incorporating process focused art activities in the Activity Guide featured as a downloadable file under the Resources tab on their website.
Be sure to visit their website for a wide variety of resources related to this year’s selection, My Cousin Momo by Zachariah OHora.
You can also access past selections and related activities from the site, making it a treasure trove of art ideas for programming.
