Framing a Developmental Psychology of Art.
Pufall, Peter B.
Human Development, v40 n3 p169-80 May-Jun 1997
Frames a developmental psychology of art by contrasting the structural orientation of the study of drawing and the functional orientation of the study of artistry. This model maintains that graphic symbolization emerges with early mark-making, children's representative art is guided by perceptions of affordances, and children continue to engage in art if it has social developmental significance.
