Any Art teachers/ artists on here?

Found 4th May 2009
I'm analysing some primary children's art work and am sure theres some more technical terms for what I'm describing but I'm not sure what they are.

* scribbling (as a method of shading)
* drawing what they think they see, not what is in front of them (i.e. drawn a green sprout on a carrot when there wasnt one)
* drawing an object from the front, rather than the angle they are looking at it from (One child has drawn a mug with the handle at the side, when in fact it was obscured from his view)
* inability to draw accurate circles (more like a triangle!)
*smudging lines outwards, away from the object they've drawn to give the object a 'halo' effect

Would appreciate any help from those who know what I'm talking about!
I am likely to add more as I come to them!

Happy digging !!!!]http//en…als

What you're talking about is more child learning psychology.
What is happening is that the children are drawing from their memory, what they know.
They know that a mug has a handle, and without a handle that it isn't a mug, so they put the handle on in order to fill the criteria of drawing a mug.
The same applies to the carrots.
The inability to draw circles and the scribbling for shading is just motor skills that have not fully developed, it'll be like asking you to draw a circle with your 'non writing' hand. Because you've had little practise, you'll have trouble doing it.

I have no idea about the halo effect... lol

[EDIT] I totally went off what you were asking for. My bad lol

Scribbling for shading: hatching, cross hatching.
