This book explores the contribution made by art and creativity to early education and learning, by reflecting upon and understanding more about the role of the 'atelier' in the pioneering pre-schools of Reggio Emilia. It is written by one of the most experienced atelieristas from this region who has many decades' experience to share.Whilst first looking at the history of the atelier and the development of some key themes about the relationship of the atelier and atelierista to early childhood education, this text is interspersed by two dialogues: the first between Vea and a group of teachers and pedagogistas, the second between Vea and a group of designers. These dialogues will, in both cases, help explore the relationship between the atelierista and others actively engaged in work with young children.Following a detailed introduction by the series editors, Gunilla Dahlberg and Peter Moss, considering the significance of the authorâ€™s text for early childhood education more generally, the book concludes with an interview between Vea and the series editors, which provides an opportunity to explore issues that readers may themselves feel intrigued or curious about having read Veaâ€™s words.
