Art, just like society, changes with time, the elements intertwining, constantly adapting and changing, looking for new and contemporary approaches for presenting its concepts and workpieces. Preschool education is similar. We must choose appropriate educational approaches to present the curriculum while intertwining multiple aspects of child development. We should encourage children to be creative, to explore, push their boundaries, gain new knowledge and abilities, learn how to express their individuality. Setting the bar too high too soon can limit their imagination, cause them to lose interest in learning and hinder their development.
In my thesis I wish to present the artistic movement OHO and explore how to use their artistic method as a part of art education of preschool children. I will focus on their work in the theoretical part of the thesis and try to connect their influence on the arts with their elements of children's play and how it affected the educational system. I will also focus on Srečo Dragan and his role in the development of video in Slovenia.
In the practical part I will explore creativity in children's play. I will look for similarities in factors that influence a small community. My main focus throughout the thesis will be on the ways in which creativity and play influence communication and transfer of knowledge.
