Pooling Ideas on Art & Imaging

Nicholls, David

Paperback 52 pp, many colour illustrations. Trentham Books and NSEAD (1997)

ISBN 0185856 059 4

This book is an inspiration. The author has taught art for almost two decades at a school for children with physical disabilities, working with them from nursery to school-leaving age. His conviction that their artistic creativity was inhibited only by physical limitation is more than justified by the evidence he puts before us here. Through computers the pupils have produced exciting and often brilliant work, some of it shown on these pages. The author describes the techniques he has employed with a clarity and detail that will be immediately helpful to teachers using computers in art classes in schools. Equally significant, however, is his own approach - both to creativity itself and to the young people who have had the good fortune to be taught by him. This book has much to say to teachers of art in all schools and also to all those working with children and young people who have special educational needs.

Cost (including p&p): £15.75 (U.K.)
