Hi all, I know you're probably cringing at the subject heading of mine
but I can't help it. I am an art teacher in Sydney Australia and I am
now doing my Honours research thesis on colouring-in!
When I did my first search on the topic I found this list and thought
I'd stuck gold !!! I have printed all the messages from the last few
years and although the feeling that came across towards this time last
year was that you are fed up with colouring-in I desperately need you to
vent those opinions again.
For those of you new to the topic, get ready for what you are about to
I have read the Duncum article, I have Heilman's 1954 thesis, I have
read Lowenfeld and King. I am fascinated by this topic! I am doing
qualitative research where my primary method of data collection will be
focused interviews. Due to the nature of this list however, I would love
to put up a survey for people to answer....
If anyone can suggest ways to word questions, or can suggest any texts
or articles I can read about colouring-in, drawing development,
children's and adults attitudes to art, etc etc, please contact me at
Keep watching this space. thanks.....
