The drawing is a graphical representation of a real object or an idea abstract

The drawing is one of the oldest forms of expression of humanity. Drawing is used as a form of communication from prehistory, when the first men through small figures, drawn on rocks and walls of the caves, expressed their ideas and thoughts together. At first, they used pictures to communicate, to express opinions, and everyone was practically illiterate. The drawings functioned as scripture. Over time, the picture gained new forms, new lines, and was refined to the current reality. The drawing is, therefore, a graphical representation of a real object or an abstract idea.

Children Drawing
The pattern and stages of children
The drawing is almost always the first great work of children. Represents the first great treasure expressive because, throughout the drawings the children say a lot about themselves. It may be that this is the reason why many parents are increasingly interested in the drawings making their children. The drawing can be converted, in some cases, the thermometer of the child's mood, and that translates what the child feels, thinks, wants, or what he is concerned, it makes you happy or sad.

  • - The Scribble stage - from 3 to 6 years of age
  • - The stage of the scheme - up from 6 to 9 years
  • - The intermediate stage - from 9 to 12 years of age
  • - The faithful reproduction stage - from 12 to 14 years of age
  • - The stage of spatial representation - from 14 years of age.
