Can anyone tell me what art therapy would say about a child's drawing that is all tiny circles...
spiraling outward, each row a different color and each circle the same size? Sort of like mosaic tile?
In mine own art language I can call this 'monocubism' technique. This technique must be a rear one I guess. I'd love to see the visual impression.
In medical terms I would not know but I sure know that child is in for the stars when he grows up with that skill.
An art therapist isn't going to say much without knowing the child and witnessing the child in action. There are many things that an art therapist would be able to pick up about the child's behavior like is the child anxious or what is the child saying while doing this activity, etc.
While I am not by any means a liscenced clinician, I can say from my studies of symbology, archetypes, psychology, and art that circles and spirals are ubiquitous archetypes of the cosmos. The circle in itself represents wholeness and completeness, a unity. It is to be found representative of and manifested in everything from the structure of atoms to planets and their orbits, stars, and galaxies. The spiral is also present in such ways from the spiral structure of DNA to the spiral form of the Milky Way. In archetypal symbology, the spiral is associated with eternity, the universe unfolding, the path of spiritual enlightenment, and God. The application of color indicates to me a sense of the cosmic order. I think you have a very special child with a deeply intuitive sense of the spiritual and who is very in tune with the cosmic mystery we call life, the universe and everything. I don't know anything about your child other than the description of the art s/he has produced so take this with a grain of salt. From the limited information you gave me, I have made my best rational/intuitive attempt to give you an honest opinion/interpretation. I hope it is of some help to you.
As a visual artist and as one who has worked with a lot of children, I would say "way to go!" Not sure what age your child is but the mere fact that they are making creative marks on paper, expressing themselves and having fun, that is what matters. In the world of art and children, there are no rules and their art work is something we can just enjoy. Remember, never tell a child "the sky isn't purple!" It's all about creating.
