Abstract

40 children ages 2 or 3 years were asked to express preferences for 9 abstract and 9 realistic paintings on two separate occasions. Children showed no clear preferences and these were stable over occasions. Their drawings were classified in the scribble stage. These results were consistent with downward extensions of aesthetic preference theories. Implications for the usual environments of young children were discussed.
