This paper suggests the possibility that figurative image work, with the primary activities being collage and finger painting, has the function of promoting the understanding of children and its objective is to discuss the significance and challenges of practicing this work as recurrent education for childcare professionals. Collage and finger painting have together emerged as artistic expressions and are formative expression techniques with certain characteristics that are being applied as art therapy. In addition, their function and effects of deepening the understanding of oneself and others have been confirmed in the education field. Hence, these techniques were combined to compose figurative image work that was continuously implemented among individuals and groups. As a result, it became evident that the participants gained awareness of emotional states through the objectification of the psychological transformations that occurred during the production process. However, going forward a challenge will be clarifying the process by which these emotional experiences promote the understanding of children and showing the usefulness of figurative image work.
