CRITERIA FOR EVALUATION OF CHILDREN'S ARTISTIC CREATIVITY. FINAL REPORT.
LEWIS, HILDA; MUSSEN, PAUL
THE STUDY ENDEAVORED TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE AN INSTRUMENT FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF ARTISTIC CREATIVITY IN PREADOLESCENTS BY EVALUATING THEIR ART PRODUCTS FOR AESTHETIC MERIT AND ORIGINALITY. THE INSTRUMENT CONSISTED OF A SERIES OF DESCRIPTIONS OF OBSERVABLE QUALITIES OF GRAPHIC AND PLASTIC ART, PRESENTED IN A FORMAT THAT FACILITATES RATING OF EACH QUALITY SEPARATELY ON A FIVE-POINT SCALE. A SET OF EIGHT DRAWINGS DONE BY SCHOOL CHILDREN IN THE 10- TO 12-YEAR RANGE WAS PRESENTED TO 19 SUBJECTS FOR EVALUATION. THE 19 SUBJECTS WERE TEACHERS WHOSE TEACHING EXPERIENCE AVERAGED ABOUT 8 1/2 YEARS. IT MAY BE CONCLUDED THAT ALTHOUGH THE SUBJECTS DIFFERENTIATED BETWEEN ORIGINALITY AND ARTISTIC MERIT, THEY DID SO IN A GLOBAL WAY RATHER THAN IN RESPONSE TO THE PARTICULAR ASPECT (ARTIST'S INTENTION, HIS METHOD, OR THE COMMUNICATION OF THE PAINTING) DESIGNATED BY THE INTERVIEWER.
