How Red is Red? A Toolkit for Art in the Early Years


This bilingual English-Welsh publication is aimed at early years practitioners, artists and galleries, and is packed with useful advice and ideas on planning and running visual arts projects for 3–7 year-olds, both in the gallery and back at school.

All the ideas come directly from the experiences of teachers, artists and gallery educators involved in Engage Cymru’s Foundation Phase action research programme that took place between 2005 and 2009. The action research showed that visiting galleries and seeing artworks first-hand can provide children with inspirational starting points and references, stimulating learning across the curriculum.
