About the book:
Art Sparks comprises a guide to developing meaningful art lessons, as well as thoughtful and clear summaries of ideas on art and art teaching. The book is an invaluable resource for artists, teachers, interested parents, and more. Exploring these questions seriously for the first time in the Indian educational context, this book guides the interested adult through an engaging and uniquely successful process of art making with children. The method — based on a workshop model — assumes that an artist is not simply an individual who is born with an innate natural talent, someone who can ‘draw well’. Rather anyone can be encouraged to engage with art making, and the learning outcomes of such an education are vast. Children will learn not only to create art, but also to be curious, ask questions and trust their imagination.
