When Families Participate

Families can be involved in expressive arts activities in the classroom through giving and receiving information, participating in, and evaluating activities. Providing information to families about the expressive arts, inviting families to assist with activities in the classroom, encouraging families to bring materials to the classroom, and giving families opportunities to initiate their own ideas for expressive arts activities are all ways to facilitate family participation. As families participate in the expressive arts, knowledge about the arts will be gained. Family members will see the positive outcomes their child is gaining through participating in expressive arts activities. Once families become informed, they can be advocates for an expressive arts curriculum. 

This chapter discusses ways to involve families with classroom activities. It also describes and includes copies of ArtExpress' Family Involvement Resources.
