Access from EThOS:
This study investigates how visual art may be used to stimulate children's creative thinking skills and encourage them to reflect on their preferred approaches to learning. With reference to a wide range of examples, it demonstrates how a number of children (aged from six to seventeen) from ten schools, who had been identified by their teachers as being in some ways able, creative, or both, approached and responded to paintings both individually and in small group discussions. It aims to provide some insight into how the pupils analysed both their own responses and the interpretations of others and used this understanding to create new meanings. It also seeb to address how children express their thoughts and feelings about different types of paintings and how they choose to present their ideas to others.
