The Child's Creation of a Pictorial World.
In this lengthy book, the author, a Professor of Psychology at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, explores child art as an expression of visual thinking. Over two-hundred examples of children's drawings, some in color, are used in this research into the activity of picture making. Golomb builds on and extends the work of Arnheim, Piaget Kellogg, Lowenfeld and the Wilsons in her attempt to understand the child at each level of development as a feeling and thinking person. This book is a must buy for all art educators and serious students interested in the child's complex and multi-faceted pictorial world.
