Working With Children And Their Drawings
MetadataShow full item record
Understanding children?s drawings is a very complex task as it involves a lot of steps and practice. Also the relationship between the child and art therapist plays a roll into how accurate the understanding of the image is, this includes knowing body language along with creative expression. While doing my research I found some of the key points in starting to understand children?s drawings and how to know what we should look at while trying to interpret an image. I started my research at the developmental stages of creative expression and looked at different researchers that I found helpful that include: Malchiodi, Betensky, Rubin, and DiLeo. These theories include the use of color, line, shape and size of the images within the drawing.
