This study aims to analyze how the teacher is represented in children’s drawings by
focusing on the differences caused by age and gender of the children. The study is carried out
by using Koppitz’s system of indicators of emotionality in human figure drawings. From the age
group of 5 to7 year olds, 40 girls and 40 boys were chosen from each age in years to make up 240
children in total for the study group. The children were then asked to “draw a teacher figure”.
As a result of the study, itwas found that there are significant differences between the age groups
and impulsivity, insecurity-inadequacy and emotional indicators in grand total, and that this
difference is caused by the significant drop in scores from five to seven years of age.
