Do not Disturb! I'm Drawing - A Journey of Self-Development Through Lines and Doodles Understanding Children’s Drawings
Understand the process and the meaning of the development of drawing in children aged one-and-a-half to six.
This new way of observing the drawings—with curiosity, enthusiasm, and excitement from experiencing the moment and acceptance—grants children the validation of being loved and understood, and increases their desire for creation, self-expression, and communication.
In a language suitable for everyone, the book exposes the reader to the secret of the fixed order of the development of children's drawing, of all its stages and meanings. Understanding the stages of the motor and emotional development of children's drawings and unraveling the encounter as well as the connection between them generates a new interest in observing your children's drawings and also provides you with the tools to understand their emotional world.
This book is an essential tool for every therapist, educator, or parent who wants to raise a child with the ability to communicate confidently and openly with the world.
Even though this is considered a "child-like" process, this unique observation also contributes to understanding the emotional world of the adult as it is reflected in mature drawings and even, occasionally, opens a window to the experience of observing the art of drawing in general.
