ABSTRACT

This study examined the effect of the cognitive ability of children and their drawing ability on creativity from various angles. The subjects of this study were 189 children enrolled in kindergarten, with an average age of 70.32 months. Research data were collected using the ‘(Korean Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence-Fourth Edition(K-WIPPSI-IV)’, the ‘Drawing Representation ability Test’, and the ‘Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. The collected data verified through reliability, stepwise multiple regression analysis, and the PROCESS macro model 4 of Hayes(2013). As a result of the study: first, there was a significant positive correlation between the cognitive ability of children, drawing representation ability, and creativity. Second, additional predictable variables affecting creativity in young children detailed description through, a sub-factor of drawing representation ability was the most predictable variable, and merging basic figures and lines, a sub-factor of drawing representation ability and visual-spatial ability, and a sub-factor of cognitive ability. Finally, in children a partial mediating effect of drawing representation ability predicted the creativity of cognitive ability.
