To determine by what processes art appreciation could be increased, two groups of fifty children each from the second, third, and fourth grades were matched for intelligence, mental age, chronological age, socio-economic status, grade, sex, and art appreciation scores. One group served as an experimental group, the other as a control group. Art appreciation was measured by a battery of tests including the following: (1) the McAdory Art Test revised to include only the best and worst choices of each test item; (2) Part I, Section I, on recognition of proportion, of the Lewerenz Tests in Fundamental Abilities of Visual Art; (3) twelve pairs of items from the Whorley Unity Scales.
