Abstract

Children’s drawings are a mirror to their mind. It is a reflection of their feelings, emotions, and their cognitive development. The early works of psychologists dating back to the 1920s were focused on children’s drawings as a measure of their intellectual abilities.

This was generally based on the principle of counting the number of body parts drawn against a prescribed list (such as head, eyes, or arms) and arriving at a score reflecting the child’s intellectual ability.

However, while this aspect of children’s drawings appears to be straightforward, it was largely thanks to the work of Elizabeth Koppitz that led to the evaluation of children’s drawings not just by counting the number of body parts but also considering the manner in which it was drawn.
