Artistic Development

7 to 9 years

As children get older, their drawings become more detailed and organized. Children at this age are enthusiastic artists, producing expressive drawings of their experiences in the world. While storytelling is still the primary motivation for drawing, they are also interested in capturing fine visual detail in their artwork. Children will now objectively choose colors to match what they see. Eventually, they become concerned with differentiating figures and objects in their artwork. It is important to hone children’s observation skills at this stage, for the more they notice, the more expressive and complex their artwork can be.
