Young Children's Drawings as a Mirror of Development
Young Children's Drawings offers observations that support research relating young children’s drawings and development. Dr. Blume shows us that predictable, archetypal forms and patterns—the circle, the triangle, the spiral—emerge according to typical stages of development in young children. She invites us to explore children’s visual language and consider what their drawings tell us about individuation. The discussion includes over 50 reproductions of children’s drawings, many of them in full color, tracing various stages of development as well as the developmental influence of common childhood illnesses.
