The Visual Arts and Cognitive Development: An Annotated Bibliography.
Ives, William, Comp.
More than 300 citations of books, articles, and conference papers published primarily within the last 20 years are listed with brief descriptions. The works include discussions of developmental theory, art education, art criticism, aesthetics, and philosophy of science as well as experimental studies. Research topics cover aspects of cognition (perception, imagery, spatial relations, symbolization, representation), art (children's conceptions of art, development of artistic ability, style, art therapy, media comparisons, and so forth), and related areas of developmental research (including creativity, play, fantasy, role-taking, personality). Although material related to adult artists is included, the emphasis is on children. (SS)
