‘The task of teaching cannot forget beauty’ Vea Vecchi (2010). Beauty is subjective. What is beautiful for one person is not necessarily beautiful for the next. But one thing is certain – beauty speaks to us. In relation to our environments, we can tell when it is absent, we can tell when it is has been neglected…but likewise, and particularly in our early years’ settings, we can tell when it has been given the deep consideration, care and attention it deserves. Beauty and aesthetics help us to make connections and understand more richly the world around us. What’s more, beauty is a human need and a right. This webinar will explore these ideas in further depth, reflecting on what they might mean for our practice.
