Process Led Art
This presentation sets out to challenge and dismantle traditional assumptions of the visual arts as a make and do, arts and crafts, time-filler, to keep children busy. It endeavours to highlight an alternative method to reconceptualise approaches to Creativity in Early Years Education. The presentation will be followed by an experiential workshop, giving insights into the pedagogic underpinning of process-led art for use in Early Childhood Education and Care settings. The workshop will provide participants with a range of creative processes, using a variety of open-ended materials; the free and found; the natural and organic; the man-made and recyclable. Image-making through the manipulation and exploration of light, translucencies and digital processes will be facilitated by the inclusion of light boxes, projectors and webcams. The workshop is based on the concept of Inquiry Based Learning using a Transdisciplinary approach, whereby potential learning opportunities are presented through carefully selected and aesthetically displayed provocations. Methods by which to address the various themes, aims and goals of The National Early Childhood Curriculum Framework; Aistear, will also be discussed.
