CAIRO BOOKS's Description
In Children and Pictures , Richard P. Jolley critiques both the historical and
contemporary studies conducted in the field of children’s making and
understanding of pictures.
Some highlights of Children and Pictures are: What develops, and why, in
children’s representational and expressive drawing, both in typical, atypical,
and cross-cultural populations. The developing relationship between production
and comprehension of pictures. Children’s understanding of pictures as symbolic
representations. Practical and applied uses of drawings, particularly in
clinical and legal settings. Diverse educational practices of teaching drawing
across the world.
Presenting up-to-date research and pointing towards future topics of study,
Children and Pictures brings the study of children’s drawings into mainstream
child development studies. This is an edifying resource for students,
researchers, practitioners, parents, artists, and educators in the field.
