Through extended laboratory measurements an attempt has been made to determine the psycho-physical traits characteristic of artistic as opposed to non-artistic children. Results indicate that while differences do not exist in motility, motor accuracy, and color sensitivity, there are significant differences in imagination, memory for visual stimuli, completeness of observation, and originality of line drawing.
