In the early stages of childhood, he learns it all by himself through the drawing of scribbles, which he improves upon into symbols and shapes in a kind of semi-realisms as he grows. This quality of self-expression through art is manifested even in his play activities where he sub-consciously expresses himself by way of rhythmic movements , gesticulation, humming of tunes and scribbling of shapes and forms.It has been observed that the child is extremely frank and expresses his true emotions in his art. He emphasizes certain things which he feels strongly in him.
