In a field where there are no ‘right’ answers, individuals learn that art can be a celebration of diversity, a celebration of individuality for its own sake. Teachers can do a great deal to foster this individuality by appreciating each piece of work a child does for its very uniqueness of expression. Contrast this with classrooms where the teacher always does the problem-solving by producing stereotypes to be copied (see Chapter 3). The reason for art being undervalued by these teachers may well lie in the fact that their children have never had the experience of making their own individual contributions.

Without a great deal of alternative mental activity, such as problem-solving, discriminating, or decision-making, all that children would do was unload their feelings. What they actually created would not really matter. And if emotional unloading were the sole purpose of art, then art sessions would need to be organized rather like psychotherapy, with the teacher acting as psychiatrist. Herbert Read (1943) probably knew exactly how emotional release could become some teacher’s platform for defending art.

In topic work (which is not the same thing as working from themes), art is often used to fulfil a rather secondary and illustrative role. It is a servant to the topic or a resource for another subject. Whilst the value of this is self-evident when children appear to be using all forms of learning within one topic, if what is done merely adds weight to the information they write about, art is robbed of its unique and creative dimension. Without counter balancing by allowing topic work to aid art, instead of the other way round, a restricted and 19 Teaching Ar t to Young Children impoverished version of artistic learning easily becomes the day-today practice.
