This study examines whether and how the presence of an adult as a receptive agent of children?s drawings has an effect on the early production of pictorial symbols by emphasizing children?s referential intention as drawers. To this end, we compared 3-year-old children?s representational drawing production with a model in four experimental conditions, three conditions with an adult as a receptive agent and one condition without a receiver. In the conditions with a receiver (Linguistic Feedback, Graphic Demonstration and GraphicProduct) children were explicitly asked to draw for an adult, who had to use children?s pictures to find hidden objects in identical boxes; the conditions differed in the adult?s actions with non-representational drawings. The results indicate that the presence of the receiver had an impact on representational production only when the adult demonstrated how to create the drawings with the intent to communicate the identity of the objects (Graphic Demonstration).Although drawing is typically view as a solitary activity, these results suggest that representational drawings may emerge in communicative contexts between drawers and receivers.
