Please mark the 6th to 8th June, 2011 in your diaries. The 4th Art in Early Childhood Conference will be held in Toledo, Ohio, USA. Professor Katherina Danko McGhee is convening the conference in collaboration with Toledo Art Museum. The web site for the conference is www.ECartconference2011.com
The 3rd Art in Early Childhood Conference, which was held in Singapore in 2009, provided an opportunity for many of the authors in this edition to present their papers. Professor Susan Wright, and her colleagues at the National Institute of Education in Singapore, convened this interesting and engaging conference that drew a wide international audience. Many thanks to all involved for your warm hospitality.
With articles from Canada, Singapore, Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia and North America, the second edition of the International Art in Early Childhood Research Journal continues the strong international representation for discussions about art in early childhood. A wide range of perspectives and theoretical frameworks made available for us through such international engagement enriches the journal, and our discussion about the many roles of art in early childhood.
