Overview

"The Child's Creation of a Pictorial World places child art within the broader context of children's creative intelligence and intrinsic motivation to invent a pictorial world. It examines the development of drawing and painting from several theoretical perspectives before examining empirical data on the artwork of children who are ordinary, talented, emotionally disturbed, and atypically developed due to mental disability or autism." The Child's Creation of a Pictorial World is intended for a broad readership of developmental psychologists, educational psychologists, clinical psychologists who use drawings for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, anthropologists interested in art, art educators, and early childhood educators. It can also serve as a textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses in child art offered in departments of psychology, art education, art history, and early childhood education.
