The pseudorealistic stage occurs between the ages of 11-13. Students' work begins to look more realistic. Lowenfield categorizes two types of young artists within this group: the haptic type and the visual type. The haptic type tends to use color to indicate emotion, while the visual type prefers color in their work to appear as it does in real life, more naturally. When color is not used in the artwork, detail is what is emphasized (effective shading, making subjects three-dimensional, etc.) We should be conduits of their pro flow!
