    Abstract

    This article consists of a systematic literature review focused on young children’s thoughts and experiences of visual art. Primarily it demonstrates the value of children’s voice for informing teaching practice in primary classrooms, providing an insight regarding how children value the curricular subject of visual art, which is in danger of being marginalised from the curriculum. Additionally, the papers are analysed using the lens of cultural capital theory, a theory which is influencing curricula and practice in the classroom and which encourages a deeper look at the lives of children and their sense of identity and place in the world.
