The sensitive relationship between graphics and words

Mark making and drawing is a language much used by children from the earliest years. Children very soon discover the pleasure of composing marks on different surfaces.

When we draw we make portraits of living things and objects, give shape to projects and fantastical worlds, communicate our ideas and emotions.

Drawing isn't only an art activity, it's a language, promoting strategies that are useful for every field of knowledge.

This Atelier offers an opportunity to transform the code of writing, using graphic marks and drawings to communicate in fuller and more immediate ways on the identities of objects usually indicated by a word.


You will find a list of the easy-to-find materials you need to take part in the Atelier in your reserved area

Each of us will be able to construct our own autonomous process of research, flanked and supported by Reggio Children's atelieristas, finding ideas and prompts for working with children of different ages.
