Abstract: The authors are from the School of Early Childhood, Faculty of Education, Queensland University of Technology. In this article, they discuss work that helped children to reveal their ideas about their rights through art. The work covered both the joyful and the sober sides of children’s perceptions and – sometimes more significantly – their realities; and it produced some potent and graphic images. The article concludes with a set of five practical lessons that cover how to make the work possible with materials and resources that are available. But they also reveal what can happen when what children express is at odds with what some people and policy-makers want to hear.
