Transcript of Case Study
of Ireland's Art Making Michelle O'Hanlon "Drawings can be said without exaggeration to undergo a life cycle of their own." Howard Gardner Artful Scribbles Language Development vs. Art Development "One can follow the child's steady course from babbling to individual sounds, to the first 'all purpose' works, like 'mama' and 'hi' and from there to simple two-word phrases, then three words, and so on" Learn the movement of their hands and their materials
Learn what types of lines they can make with the material, using certain pressures (scribble)
Draw what they know, begin to develop whole forms or basic shapes
Draw representations from the real world Ireland's representations of herself playing in her backyard, with her dog and fish "Sun-like figures"
Children by this point know what a real sun looks like, but don't feel the need to express it as a realistic in their drawings "Tadpole figures"
As the child progresses, then begin to create humanoid figures.The child starts simple, and then progresses, as he or she is able to create more skillful physical representations. A child's emotions can be a big aspect to their development and interest in drawing Marla Olmstead Vs. Ireland Wiley Does the availablity of materials effect the outcome of the final piece? Viktor Lowenfeld Jackson Pollock technique (Splatter) Creative activity for self-expression and self-adjustment. He disapproved of dependent thinking. Christine Thompson vs. "Exposure to others' drawings expands children's conceptions of the drawing process and shapes their understanding of its possibilities" (Thompson). Wrap up "Children's drawings can be said without exaggeration to undergo a life cycle of their own" (Garner 7). As a child gets older and thier language expands, he or she gains the ability to take what they know and apply it to their art making. Any questions?
