Abstract

Early childhood research has long established that drawing is a central, and
important activity for young children. Less common are investigations into the
drawing activity of adults involved in early childhood. A team of adult early
childhood researchers, with differing exposures and familiarities with drawing,
experimented with intergenerational collaborative drawing with colleagues,
students, family members and others, to explore the effectiveness of drawing as
a research process and as an arts-based methodology. This testing prompted
critical thinking into how drawing might facilitate research that involves young
children, to operate in more communicable ways, and how research-focused
drawings might occur in reference to a research project.
