Art and the Young Adolescent by F. PalmerArt and the Young Adolescent introduces a mode of instruction that encourages children between the ages of 11 to 15 to express themselves in artistic creation that do not necessarily represent the natural forms of things. It is intended that every kid finds enjoyment in creating works of art without being hindered by the child’s inability to create perfect replica of people and things. The book contains a list of materials and steps about such activities as collage creation, making an image by rubbing a pencil over a paper that covers a coin and tracing patterns on a paper. Selected activities are made to enhance the child’s self-expression. In addition to simple activities, possible creations of more complex projects by the child as he reached adulthood are cited in the book. The subject of the book is to increase the number of children engage in art. The text is intended for art teachers and teenagers in the art class.
