The Artistic Evolution of Mommy: A Longitudinal Case Study of Symbolic and Social Processes.
Boyatzis, Chris J.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n90 p5-29 Win 2000
Presents a longitudinal case study of one girl's artistic development from age 2 to 6 years to illustrate the interplay between the child's symbolic development and the social context in which she draws. Considers the observer-researcher as a "co-constructor" of artistic development, highlighting the need for models of development that integrate proximal development, developmental level, and repertoire of skill.
