The purpose of this research was to determine whether children alter the size and colour of their drawings in response to different affective characterizations of depicted topics. Ninety seven preschool children aged 4 years, 8 months were asked to draw neutraly, positively and negatively characterized figure of a man and a cat. Before drawing they had been told a short story aiming to create different characterization of different figures. The efficiency of the story in creating differently characterized figures was established by using scale of faces with different affective expresions. The height and width of each drawing was measured in millimetres and each used colour was noted down. The colour preferences were examined by the children's arranging in order the given colours according to their attractivness. It was found that there was no differences in size of children's drawings in relation to different characterizations of depicted topics. There were no sistematic colour differences in the drawings of different characterized themes considering either children's colour preferences or colour's warmth. With regard to the age of participants some size differences in drawings were found indicating that younger children draw bigger images. Colour preferences showed some sex stereotypes. Girls preffered more red colour and the boys found green and black more attractive.
