FREIRE, Luiz Gustavo Lima  and  DUARTE, António Manuel. Learning of artistic drawing in higher education: conceptions of students. Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.103, pp.363-384.  Epub May 02, 2019. ISSN 1809-4465.

In the scope of Phenomenography, this study had as objective to evaluate and map university students’ conceptions on learning artistic drawing. A group of sixteen students from a free drawing course was interviewed, among other aspects, on the nature, the process and the context of learning artistic drawing. The answers, submitted to a thematic analysis, showed the distinction between a representation of that learning as something more passive - copying observed realities through techniques and practice; in the academic environment - and something more active - personal expression through the understanding of what is perceived and of personal changes, in a broader environment. A middle-term representation also emerged, which defines learning of drawing as something intermediary - perceptual development, representation of perceptions or of imagination, creation of techniques. Awareness of conceptions of learning drawing might be a possible modification factor of those conceptions. Thus, the taxonomy that results from this study can help students, teachers and technicians in the diagnosis and intervention on that type of conception.
