ABSTRACT

Eisner opposed the dichotomous notion of separating reason and thought. And he presented a broad concept of cognition including the emotions of the qualitativeness accompanied by art activities. In this study, based on the aesthetic epistemology of Eisner 's thoughts, infant art activities were discussed from the viewpoint of the broad cognitive concept. The art activity of the infant is to internalize and symbolize the concept acquired through the experience of direct sense. The cognitive characteristics of these expressive activities appear in the whole process of activities in which infants explore, observe, and acquire knowledge. In the process of expressive activity, infants have reflective thinking that judge, interpret, revise, reinterpret, and creatively form concepts around the world. Infants also expand their thinking in an analytical and comprehensive way to express, process, and solve problems. As a result, the whole process of this art activity is the extension activity of thinking that the children search for the object , analogy and re-search. Therefore, the activities of Infants arts can be a good way to develop cognitive skills through the perception of infants. This study suggests that art activities are involved in cognitive thinking through research on the cognitive perspective of infant art. Therefore This study proposes the validity that the art education for infants should be approached from the viewpoint of inquiry and cognition.
