When is a scribble not a scribble?

Great ideas in drawing come from that unconscious moment when you have a spark of an idea and you are not sure what it is.

You start to scribble. The first form can often be difficult to recognise. Through the mark making process, ideas form and new ideas emerge.

For young children a scribble is the beginning of their ability to make sense of visual space and ideas. Dots, lines, and random shapes in children’s scribbles are where literacy begins.
Through play, exploring and trial and error, children learn that their mark making can convey meaning.
