Art as a language for children in need

Research output: Journal PublicationsJournal Article (refereed)Researchpeer-review

Abstract

When people think of art, masters and masterpieces often spring to mind. In this article, art is considered in its fundamental sense - as a language written in images. Art involves visual thinking and the use of imagery rather than language for the construction, articulation, and expression of thoughts and feelings. For children whose language skills are still developing, image writing is the best means of expression. This article reveals the significance of image thinking and the biological origin of art making. A case study is used to illustrate how art can help children in need.
