The Relationship of Language and Drawing in Description and Memory Tasks.
Colbert, Cynthia B.
Studies in Art Education, v25 n2 p84-91 Win 1984
Three- to ten-year-olds responded to a three-dimensional object by drawing it and/or verbally describing it. Two days later, they reconstructed the object in drawn or verbal form. Descriptive abilities increased with age. The children displayed differences in verbal and graphic description only when recalling the object from memory. (Author/RM)
