From the earliest years, thanks to the interpretation of the observed events and on the basis of social and cultural messages, children have been independently building naive theories of the world referring to concepts from the visual arts fi eld. This article presents the results of my own research. The subject of it was based on third-graders’ statements from Warsaw primary schools concerning the interpretation and description of the term ‘visual arts’. Focus interviews were used to collect qualitative data.
According to the research, students’ attempts to defi ne concepts from the visual arts fi eld are very rich and detailed. Most of the naive theories can be realised by the children who have them and can be made present in the form of their verbal and non-verbal statements. Therefore, the youngest children should be involved in discussions on extended cultural topics, of which they can be fullyfl edged participants.
