Presentation of the creative development of children

The Scribble stage is made up of four sub-presentation of the creative development of children. Disordered – uncontrolled markings that could be bold or light depending upon the personality of the child. At this age the child has little or no control over motor activity.

Longitudinal – controlled repetitions of motions. Demonstrates visually an awareness and enjoyment of kinesthetic movements. Circular – further exploring of controlled motions demonstrating the ability to do more complex forms. The preschematic stage is announced by the appearance of circular images with lines which seem to suggest a human or animal figure. The drawings show what the child perceives as most important about the subject.
