View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Beautifully illustrated with dozens of children's drawings, this is an in-depth, yet easy to follow introduction to art in early childhood. These pictures are interpreted so as to make visible the universality of artistic expression in the first seven years. Ms. Strauss interprets such elements as line and movement, line to surface and from symbol to illustration. This slightly oversized volume also includes an explanation of "the close connections existing between the activity of painting and drawing and the stages of the child's bodily growth".

About the Author:

Michaela Strauss built on the work of her father Hanns Strauss (1883–1946), a painter and art teacher who collected thousands of children’s drawings and compared and evaluated them. Stimulated by Rudolf Steiner’s lecture course The Study of Man (The Foundations of Human Experience), this research became Hanns’ life’s consuming interest. Following her father’s early death, Michaela continued his research and brought this book to publication.
