Students with Artistic Talent in Hong Kong: How Might They Be Identified?
David W. CHAN（陳維鄂）
The identification of children with visual arts talent in the Hong Kong school setting presents a challenge to educators and practitioners because artistic talent could be manifested in many ways and in different visual arts media. A sequential identification procedure that involves nominations, behavioral ratings, and drawing tasks is then discussed in light of an overview of the origins of artistic talent, the characteristics of artistically talented children, and the developmental trajectory of artistic talent among children and adolescents. The possible adaptations of Clark's Drawing Abilities Test and the development of an impossible figures test for identifying visual arts talented students are also discussed.
