This practical resource demonstrates how all clinicians can broaden and enhance their work with children by integrating drawing into therapy. The book enables therapists to address the multidimensional aspects of children's art without resorting to simplistic explanations. Approaching drawing as a springboard for communication and change, Malchiodi offers a wealth of guidelines for understanding the intricate messages embedded in children's drawings and in the art-making process itself. Topics covered include how to assist children in making art, what questions to ask and when, and how to motivate children who are initially resistant to drawing. Assimilating extensive research and clinical experience, the book includes over 100 examples of children's work.

CHILD & DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY. When children draw, what are they trying to convey? What do they see in their own work and what can we learn from it? Richard Jolley critiques the most recent studies conducted in the field, lending insight and perspective to art's roll in understanding child development. Addressing the traditional theories of drawing development, Jolley examines the key concepts of understanding and production, regarding pictures as representations, and relates this idea to children's concept of representation as a whole. Emphasizing the need to bring the study of children's drawings into mainstream child development studies, this text looks at the use of drawings in clinical settings, their noted benefits in therapeutic processes and examines their use as memory aids. Presenting up-to-date research, and pointing towards future topics of study, "Children and Pictures" is an edifying resource for parents, students, researchers, and educators in the field.

The human figure is one of the earliest topics drawn by the young child and remains popular throughout childhood and into adolescence. When it first emerges, however, the human figure in the child's drawing is very bizarre: it appears to have no torso and its arms, if indeed it has any, are attached to its head. Even when the figure begins to look more conventional the child must still contend with a variety of problems: for instance, how to draw the head and body in the right proportions and how to draw the figure in action. In this book, Maureen Cox traces the development of the human form in children's drawings; she reviews the literature in the field, criticises a number of major theories which purport to explain the developing child's drawing skills and also presents new data.

"Making Sense of Children's Drawings is enlivened with the real drawings of seven young children collected over three years. These drawings stimulated dialogues with the children, parents and practitioners whose voices are reported in the book. The book makes an argument for us to rethink radically the role of drawing in young children's construction of meaning, communication and sense of identity. It provides insights into the influence of media and consumerism, as reflected in popular visual imagery, and on gender identity formation in young children. It also offers strong messages about the overemphasis on the three Rs in early childhood education.".

Children do not become artists overnight. There are a number of different things which help them improve their drawing skills. Without practice, they will not improve. Without dedication, their technique will not develop. And without a simple, step-by-step guide like this one, which is designed to make drawing fun, they will not be passionate.One important thing to remember is that no child will create perfect sketches. When we are younger, it is in our nature to be messy and to experiment as we learn. This means that as a parent or guardian, teaching your children to draw requires a lot of patience.It is likely that your children will want to produce quality drawings straight away and may become frustrated when they cannot do this as well as you can. This is why having a guide such as this one is so important. It teaches kids that learning to draw does not happen at once
