Promoting children's play and education is a key task for educators in day-care centres. But how do we go about it, and how do we create learning environments that support these processes?
This book explores how children's encounters with art and culture can promote play and education. What art and play have in common is that they are both activities in which children and adults explore the world and relate openly to the situation. The book explores how play and art concretely open up the world and communities, creating opportunities for children to have formative experiences.
Play art is therefore both a concept for the art of promoting play and for inviting art and culture into the day care centre in a way that promotes children's education.
The first part of this book introduces the concepts of play, education, art and culture and offers a view on the role of the educator in play. The second part of the book examines seven concrete examples of programmes in which children encounter art and culture, based on research projects in the LegeKunst project.
