Constraints on the Visual Accuracy of Drawings Produced by Young Children.
Taylor, Marjorie; Bacharach, Verne R.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v34 n2 p311-29 Oct 1982
Errors made by 5- and 8-year-old children asked to draw a model were investigated in two studies. Results from both indicated that 5-year-old children are more likely to produce visually accurate drawings than had previously been supposed; for both ages difficulty in producing accurate drawings occurred when drawing rules and conventions interfered with the task.
