A study to explore relationships between certain personality characteristics and behaviour characteristics as displayed in the art activities of ten individuals from the ages of six to fifteen years in order to establish topics for future investigation Ng, Betty Shuet-Wah
This study of behaviour as displayed in art activities was carried out in the Child Art Research and Demonstration Centre, the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia, from October, 1961 to March, 1962. The behaviour of ten individuals ranging in age from six to fifteen was observed and recorded in the form of time samples, anecdotal records and rating scales. This study consists of: 1. A survey of documents written by authorities in the field of art education. 2. A general analysis of the techniques used in the collection and treatment of the data. 3. Reports of individual cases indicating qualitative and quantitative results of the study. The need to substitute facts for opinions has prompted the study. In general, this study has disclosed that no significant relationships exist between certain personality characteristics and behaviour characteristics as displayed in art activities. Although the number of subjects has been limited, yet the accurate and detailed conclusions are able to supply topics for further investigation.
