Recording of Child Perception for Television in their Specific Paintings

Paraskevi Golia, Ifigenia Vamvakidou, Elena Zigouri.

As theoretical field we use visual intelligence, visual literacy, semiotics of icon and pedagogic and visual education.

Our research aim is to elucidate the 'viewers', the way the children in preschool receive the visual messages and the way they reproduce them.
Preschool children and child painting can be considered as a special field in visual intelligence and visual literacy.

The sample of the research is original collection-from kindergartens in Kastoria and Florina in North Greece. The topic for drawing was given as 'Draw the Television'.

The sample will be analyzed using the method of Kress-reading images- in the field of social semiotics.
