Abstract

Experimenting with materials is something that all children do both at preschool and primary school. Working with materials at school is even more relevant in evaluating what has been produced and go beyond this inescapable frontier, already crossed by art, even in education.This paper presents the first results of an exploratory survey that investigated the meaning and effect of working with materials at schools, based on two parallel and complementary processes: finished and unfinished objects. This survey confirmed that working with different types of materials makes it possible for children to develop their creativity through different but just as important pathways
