L'autonomie par les arts visuels en maternelle

Abstract : This study takes place in a class of first and second year of preschool. There are thirty-two pupils. Fourteen of them, all second years, took part in the study. The main goal is to show that visual arts can help students gain greater autonomy. During four sessions the children worked in relation with the book from Keith Faulkner La grenouille qui avait une grande bouche (The wide-mouthed frog). They had to paint various animal's imprints for instance those of the frog boucing around or fleeing the crocodile. The study focuses on the tools the pupils use (paintbrush, paintroller, toothbrush, sponge, newspaper sheets), and how they use them. The result shows that students first choose according to their desires. Then, they become more rational and choose according to their needs, to what they want to paint. They also find new ways of using these tools and take initiatives. Therefore, visual arts effectively helped these fourteen pupils develop various kinds of autonomy.
