    30. 30. Bamaga Children creating ‘Sea’ artworks<br />Children have their own creative way of telling stories visually. Each drawing has its own story. TabraniPrimadi, Professor from ITB Indonesia, (as cited in, Ahmad and Soo-Min) states ‘They do not only draw what they see, but a result of collaboration between all of their senses, thoughts and imagination.’ He compares children’s drawings to pre-historic, and avante-garde artists work that follow right brain strategies and exist within a Space-Time-Plane (STP).<br />
    31. 31. Each picture contains several scenes that move in time and space. For example one would not only see a drawing of a house but a vision of what is inside the house and events taking place. Objects of importance are drawn larger. Near objects drawn low on the picture plane and distant objects are placed higher or to the back of the picture plane. This is compared with the Naturalistic-Perspective Moment (NPM) where the system works like a camera, recording things and people as they are, following the left brain system of linear perspective. <br />
    32. 32. Although the story maker does have a facility for including feelings, actions and interactions the results are not as imaginative as an original drawing.<br />This drawing by a five year old boy, (the one with glasses) clearly demonstrates the bullying he suffers from his older sister.<br />(Drawing reproduced in Edwards, 1979).<br />The drawing displays raw emotion and passion.<br />
