Children neither make sentences by copying older speakers, nor do they learn to draw by merely imitating adult pictures. On the other hand, neither is development, in either language or drawing, completely idiosyncratic. Resolving the apparent contradiction between processes which seems to be at the same time both creative yet universal has been a perennial problem in describing development (Wilson and Wilson, 1985; Wilson, 1997). In any aspect of development, for example, learning to walk, children seem to move through similar sequences of development.

When children struggle to master actions, objects and skills, or when they try to understand something new, as when Ben learned to grasp a brush, put it in a pot and lift out the paint without spilling it, children adapt their actions and their thinking to the demands of these specific tasks and objects. Piaget called this process accommodation. This is not play. In this situation children are struggling to attain action and object-mastery. Play allows us a completely different attitude. When children play, they temporarily free their actions from the restrictions imposed upon them by the demands of the situation.

Drawing actions are members of a family of interacting expressive and representational actions formed against a history of earlier actions. Ben has already learnt about the uses of the confines of the paper. For instance, he restricts most of his mark-making to this sheet. Arranging one’s attention and actions towards a blank sheet of paper in readiness for the act of painting might be taken for granted by an adult. qxd 14-Feb-03 3:09 PM Page 17 PAINTING IN ACTION 17 over many years by a society.
