During the 24 to 28 months’ developmental stage, Zenia’s painting strategies evidently improved. From lines and dots which were predominant in the previous stages of growth, Zenia progressed to drawing faces, which was the image painted at 24 months (Zenia Paints From 24 to 28 Months, 2013). The strategy focusing on refined technique of drawing small dots one after the other was also clear at this stage; in conjunction with providing a verbal label of what was drawn ‘a present’. At 26 months, it was commendable that Zenia had recognized the need to control the amount of paint to be used through tapping the brush at the side of the mug which contains the paint to ensure that excess paint would drip in the mug, rather than on her page. Finally, at 28 months, Zenia’s painting strategies were more pronounced in drawing figures and in labelling parts through verbalization. She was able to draw a figure through an elongated form representing a person with pronounced head, eyes, legs, arms, hair, slippers and ears. Overall, evident progress could be confirmed as Zenia painted simple lines and dots to figures representing faces or persons in correct spatial details, as depicted from the videos. Zenia’s progress as she learned how to draw and paint from different stages of development were documented from the video. During her 15 to 22 months of age, Zenia was shown to manifest strategies that ranged from marking colored photos from magazines to the use of brush with slapping techniques to paint
lines and dots.
