Beauty and aesthetics are important elements of education for young children. The sense of beauty and the joy and pleasure it bring to our hearts is everlasting and impacts our intellectual & moral experiences.
Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach, we recognize that children are not isolated entities, but unique individuals who are constantly relating with the people and the materials around them. Educators hold the important role of understanding the characteristics of materials and bringing them to life.
In this interactive workshop we will explore the ways we appreciate beauty in our work with children and their right to their 100 languages. We ask ourselves:
How do materials interact with the world around them and what does this mean for children?
What does it mean to be in relation with objects and how can educators support this relationship?
What is the role of invitations or provocations?
