Gesell on drawing

September 21, 2012

“Drawing should be systematically utilized as a developmental test, if for no other reason than the fact that it leaves its own objective record. The record frequently needs qualifying and interpretative comment, but to a considerable extent it tells its own story…It may be nothing more than a banging staccato or a faint fugitive scrawl but it belongs to the record.”

Gesell, A. (1930) The Mental Growth of the Pre-School Child. New York: Macmillan.
