The intention of this article is to position drawing as language, means of representation, regaining an historic vision of the area. Passing through the classic phases of social development, from prehistory to the present day, drawing serves the most varied forms of representation of the world. On the contrary, however, the teaching of this discipline in primary and secondary schools, gradually abandons this wider approach and consequently that concept, restricting itself to mere mechanical and abstract geometric construction, totally unliked to social action. This results in a loss of its educational significance, leading to its exclusion from the school curriculum. Even taking as basis the geometric configurations, it is necessary to consider drawing as instrument of interpretation of the phenomena of the world in which we are placed.
