The study examined the effects of two and three dimensional visual objects on learners' drawing skills in junior secondary schools in OsunState, Nigeria. It also determined students' ability to identify visual objects. Furthermore, it investigated the comparative effectiveness of two and three dimensional visual objects on drawing skills of junior secondary school students. The study employed the pretest, post- test experimental design. The study population consisted of all junior secondary school one students in Osun State. Three junior secondary schools were purposively selected from Atakumosa Local Government Area of Osun State. A sample of 120 JSS1 students was selected from the three schools using stratified sampling techniques with sex as stratum. These were later randomly assigned into two experimental and one control groups. The first experimental group was taught drawing using three-dimensional visual objects; the second experimental group was taught using two-dimensional visual objects, while group three the control group was taught using conventional method. The research instrument was a Visual Object Achievement Test (VOAT). This was administered as pre test and post test. Data gathered were analyzed using ANOVA and t-test statistics. The results showed that there was a significant difference in the basic drawing skills of learners taught with visual objects and those taught without visual objects (F = 14.163, p< 0.05). The results also showed that there was a significant difference in the identification ability of learners taught with two and three dimensional visual objects and those taught with conventional method. (F = 4.599, p< 0.05).The study concluded that the use of two and three dimensional objects will enhance drawing skills.
