The 2nd Sungduk International Early Childhood Education Symposium and Workshop

More from the Very, Very Magic Suitcase: TV interview with Portuguese news

The interview was shot during our exhibition "The Very Very Magic Suitcase and Other Art." It was a wonderful opportunity to share the children's work and the process behind the exhibition with a wider audience.

The mapping of an art adventure: a preschoolers’ journey of colors and landmarks

Adventures may happen in unexpected moments – as may art. When Oren, Tom, and I hopped and skipped our way from the preschool room to the art studio that morning, we had no idea of the great adventure ahead of us.

“It’s About Inspiring Fantasies:” A Review of George Szekely’s Play and creativity in art teaching

It seems redundant to write here a review of the review, so I'll just say that re-reading it never fails to bring me back to the joy of a sunny and playful family week at the beach, using a shell to draft the outline of a book in the sand. There's worst ways to work...
