Baby Talk

Teaching artists with an interest in early childhood education, might find this article in the New York Times Sunday Magazine to be of interest.  Ongoing observational studies at Yale, seem to confirm that babies are critical thinkers--they may even be able to tell right from wrong.

I think one of the implications of this research for  teaching artists is the idea that even very young children can create and experience artwork with challenging and complex themes, because they are capable of reflection.
