Young Children’s Drawings of People Part I

Drawing People

Since we’re focusing on portraiture in the studio for the next month, I’m going to devote my next few posts to how young children represent people.  As an artist and educator, I’ve been really interested in the mark-makings of very young children ever since the studio was gifted Rhoda Kellogg’s Analyzing Children’s Art and Children’s Drawings /Children’s Minds by one of our volunteers. Rhoda Kellogg has examined millions of drawings by young children from all over the world and has shared her observations in numerous books and articles. I’m going to let her words inspire my own examination of the works created by our visitors over the next month and hopefully I’ll have some interesting things to share with you.
