Welcome to the Rhoda Kellogg Collection


Rhoda Kellogg was a psychologist, scholar and child educator who collected and studied children’s art over the course of her lifetime. From 1948 to 1981, Kellogg collected several million drawings made by children, ages 2 through 6, as they scribbled to teach themselves to draw. Kellogg’s thesis was that universal patterns and developmental stages can be found in a study of children’s art.
