Children’s Drawings are Letters of Inquiry by Dr Rebecca Chan

Date: 17 December 2022, Saturday
Time: 2pm – 3pm
Location of Workshop: Lewin Terrace, Fort Canning Park (Registration Meeting Point: CMSG Carpark) 

Do adults value children’s drawings as letters of communication? Children process thoughts, feelings, and observations by drawing.

In this workshop, we shall investigate children’s drawings from a developmental perspective to help us understand how children use drawing to inquire and clarify their thoughts and feelings about their immediate environment and experiences. 

Dr Rebecca Chan is a lecturer with the Psychology and Child, & Human Development Academic Group, NIE/NTU. Her major interests are exploring the psychology of children’s drawings, how to use children’s drawings to build constructive relationships and curriculum planning, and to extend children’s self and other awareness and creative thinking processes for more than 20 years. She has given talks at the Professional Learning Institute, NAEYC conferences, the US and in the UK on children’s drawings. She specialises in early childhood education and arts education for young children. She is a visual artist who works with mixed media and her work has been exhibited at the Gardens by the Bay and the Singapore Science Centre.
