Art Stages

Children's developmental stages of art.
3-4 year old child
Sometime during the third and fourth year children start to combicircles and lines to create images that represent people, animals and objects.

The Drawing Network
Enriching Language in the Home/School Curriculum Please read the following from the Drawing Network and give some thought to how it might relate to your children, the children of your friends, neighbours, and community, indeed, children the world over! The basic message comes in three parts: 1) Children are born with a propensity to draw from approximately age-two.

Developing Mastery through critique: Stolen Ideas
Having two kids of my own and with a bit of useful research under my belt, I have looked at how kids make sense of drawing faces. Funnily enough, for most of us, after inane scribbles, come two distinctive dots. Eyes, like little raisins.

LOWENFELD
(2 to 4 years) The Scribble stage is made up of four sub-stages. (a) Disordered - uncontrolled markings that could be bold or light depending upon the personality of the child. At this age the child has little or no control over motor activity. (b) Longitudinal - controlled repetitions of motions.

Artful Adventures
This week I thought I'd take a look at how children's artwork develops from their earliest scribbles and daubs, through to about the age of 11 or 12. Although all children will show the same broad developmental stages, the age at which they are reached may vary a little from child to child.

The Stages of Artistic Development
Understanding the stages of artistic development can help you become better at creating art. It can also help you become a more effective art teacher. We develop artistically. Just like we develop other skills like talking and walking in stages, we develop artistic skills in the same way.

Piaget and Spatial Concepts
Jean Piaget (1896 - 1980) was a Swiss biologist and psychologist whose goal was to describe the developmental stages of children's thinking in a variety of domains, one of which is space and geometry. His methods largely consisted of observing children, mostly his own. Research works of Piaget have shown that spatial skills develop progressively...

A Day with the De Jongs
This might not be interesting to some (or even most), but it's completely fascinating to me- children's progression of writing. When I used to teach in the 2's, I never got to experience this because they were all basically scribbling.

The Wonder Years
My daughter recently reached the last page of her journal. After a little over a year of once-a- week journal drawing, she has drawn her way through the entire journal. The journals are actually sketch books and once a week we set aside time to sit and free draw.

Drawing With Children
A poignant scene from the film "Taare Zameen Par" would possibly be imprinted in the mind of every parent. Young Ishaan, agonized at being banished to boarding school, uses a simple flip book to demonstrate his feelings, each page in succession showing a drawing of his moving away from his family.
