Of Victor Lowenfeld's Stages of Artistic Development, the disordered stage is the first sub-stage of the first stage, the scribble stage. The Scribble stage typically occurs at 2-4 years old. The disordered stage is characterized by uncontrolled markings that could be bold or light depending upon the personality of the child. At this age the child has little or no control over motor activity.Related link: Young Artists, U of Florida art education professor Craig Roland's pages offer a more contemporary interpretation of childrens' stages of art development, and has a section about the scribbling stage.
