ART FOR CHILDREN
Dengo is a incredible artist and calligrapher from Italy. She has
been teaching HANDWRITING AS ART to children and adults for many
years. The KIDS - BOOKS section in her web site offers books on
handwriting and a short course for adults who desire to improve
their own handwriting and use it as model to teach to others.
the pre-school years is too early to think about cursive writing
I believe there are important considerations in this field. One
of my points is that cursive development will be enhanced by giving
the children more opportunities to see well formed rhythmical cursive
writing. The child sees letters, numbers and words everywhere ...
but very seldom experiences cursive writing. Most of the writing
children see is generally a font that has been carefully drawn
and not written out. My dream is to give teachers the instruments,
documentation and knowledge to write well formed cursive letters,
with an emphasis on the rhythm in handwriting. In any case, if
teachers, educators and parents write by hand, the child will see
handwriting and will learn to appreciate it.
