Cox, M. V.; Parkin, C. E.
Educational Psychology, v6 n4 p353-68 1986
This cross-sectional and longitudinal study investigated the development of human figure drawing in 42 children aged two to four years and eleven months. Drawings were categorized as scribbles, distinct forms, tadpoles, transitional, or conventional figures. Results suggest that young children draw the human figure in a tadpole form before they draw a conventional form. (JDH)
