How Children Learn To Draw the Human Figure: Studies from Singapore.
Matthews, John
European Early Childhood Education Research Journal, v5 n1 p29-58 1997
Studied drawing strategies used by children ages 2 to 4 in Singapore nurseries and kindergartens using experiments and naturalistic observation. Found that during period when children are supposedly "scribbling," they make systematic investigations of visual structure and develop a cluster of representational strategies involving patches of pigment and linear configurations; combined, these strategies form complex visual descriptions.
