From the refrigerator door to the art gallery floor : young children's experiences with the display of their own visual artwork
Boone, Danielle J. (2008) From the refrigerator door to the art gallery floor : young children's experiences with the display of their own visual artwork. Professional Doctorate thesis, Queensland University of Technology.
The practice of displaying young children’s visual artwork in early childhood classrooms poses a number of questions about the child and his or her work. Following Giorgi’s approach to phenomenological research, this thesis focused on children’s lived experiences of art display. 13 children between the ages of 4 and 6 years attending an independent school outside metropolitan Detroit, Michigan (USA) disclosed their experiences of seeing their artwork on display. Dr Boone’s study revealed that, despite clear evidence of children’s strong views, decisions about the display of artwork continue to rest with adults.
