CL4b-Drawing as Thinking: Module 2


In this second Drawing as Thinking module, Debi invites us to think more deeply about drawing as a language that is spoken with hands. We examine how drawing materials and tools themselves influence children’s communication through drawing. We also explore a multimodal approach to drawing that can enable children to better observe, think, and express what they understand and feel about their world.

This Drawing as Thinking series has been developed in response to an online conversation with Debi Keyte-Hartland. Each module in this five-part series invites educators to re-visit their assumptions and beliefs about children’s drawing, and to apply their insights uniquely to their work with young children.

In Drawing as Thinking Module 2, we explore drawing as a language children speak with their hands. We focus on varied elements of drawing that can propel or limit their effective and meaningful communication. We reflect on how the characteristics of drawing materials and tools can nurture children’s ability to ‘speak’. We also examine how educators can respond to children’s drawings with multimodal approaches, and with the intention and attention children need.
