Standards for Evaluating Paintings by Children in the Primary Grades

Standards for Evaluating Paintings by Children in the Primary Grades

Date: January 1954
Creator: Jenkins, Frances M.
Description: Since most adults generally evaluate children's creative expression by adult standards, view it as meaningless, and frequently present children with hackneyed forms of visual "art"--such as stencil patterns, or color books in which the children are encouraged to copy adult drawings--the purpose of this study is to develop legitimate standards which the adult observer may use in judging children's paintings and to explain these standards through analyses of children's paintings selected from Grades I through III.
