Children Show Artistic Talent


Miniature Michelangelos the
world over are displaying their
masterpieces in the Rackham gal-
leries for the month of April.
This exhibition of international
children's art assembled by the'
Department of Art is entitled "A
Visual Survey of International Art
Education," but is often referred
to by its more popular name, "Im-
ages, Signs and Symbols."
It was set up in connection with
the conference on art education
held at the University the first of
this month, and sponsored by the
Museum of Modern Art. Two-hun-
dred fifty works from 40 different
countries are exhibited.
Most Complete Exhibit
Selected in an effort to get al
comprehensive coss-section of the
total collection, rather than for
their artistic merit, these pieces
represent the work of children
from the ages of five to 18.
Alex Picke. s, associato professor.
in the College of Architecture and
Design, who is in charge of the
exhibition, says this is the most
complete exhibit of this kind ever;
to be shown in the United States.
He explains that children repre-
sent things that are large, things
attractive in color, things repre-
senting pleasurable associations,
human beings for whom they feel
emotion, and cows and dogs be-
cause of their size and contrast in
Consistencies Noticed
When the exhibit was put to-
gether certain consistencies be-
came apparent. It was noticed
that younger children all over the
world seem to be preoccupied with
images: they represent what they
would like to see or what they feel
rather than carefully sketching in
realistic details.
As children mature the image
seems to lose its importance and1
is repltced by more realistic forms
such as signs and symbols. The
adolescent is concerned with re-
cording accurately the environ-
ment in which he lives. He is likely
to put a great deal of emphasis on
technical proficiency.
It is from these observations
that the title "Images, Signs and
Symbols" was derived.
