This qualitative study aimed to describe, interpret, and appraise Reggio Emilia’s approach to education, particularly in regards to studio time, a place in the curriculum when art is prominent. This study examined two preschool sites, one in Colorado and one in Missouri. Data collection methods included observations, interviews and the collection of artifacts. The findings suggest that Reggio-inspired studios help preschool-aged children learn to use materials as ‘languages’ to express their thinking, questions, feelings and ideas.
