    Viktor Lowenfeld.....a diety? ...yes maybe...and he did much work and
    research in psychology and child development and
    art...specifically....but...he did not have anything to do with
    DBAE....that would be Harry Broudy and others after him.... by about 35-40
    years. Lowenfeld is called the "father of art education" by many and
    his philosophical base is in child centered education....whereas
    considered subject centered. Try Creative and Mental Grouth... his book
    which outlines stages of creative development in children..... It is a
    classic.....and critical resource I think.... His ideas I think are
    variously interpreted....especially today.... You should read and decide
    for yourself.....give him some time...he is worth it.

    Look up in your library or teacher center, even on on the www- he
    wrote many books, is a practical deity inart ed- a founder of the DBAE
    approach before it was known as that- also wrote a lot about the psychology
    of different age groups and their typical responses to art projects. I still
    have his texts to this day.
