Dawning realism stage
The third of the Stages of Artistic Development named and described by Victor Lowenfeld, it typically occurs in children during the ages of 9 to 11. This stage is typically preceded by the schematic stage (6-9) and followed by the pseudorealistic stage (11-13).Related links: Jim Brutger, professor of art education at the U of Minnesota Duluth offers a page about Lowenfeld's Stages of Artistic Development. Young Artists, U of Florida art education professor Craig Roland's pages offer a more contemporary interpretation of childrens' stages of art development, and has a section about the realism stage.
