This paper sets out to examine the value of talk in the making, understanding and appreciation of Art at Key Stage One of the National Curriculum. First-hand experience of both artworks and natural and made objects is important to young children's aesthetic awareness and understanding but it also offers a means of developing a spoken and written vocabulary to describe and classify them. The spirit of co-operation which seems to develop through exploration of objects provides opportunities for talk-helping children to understand more clearly 'what they are doing and extending their powers of imagination, reasoning and problem-solving. The use of works produced by artists, both originals and in reproduction, stimulates discussion as the children compare their attempts with the artists' representations.
