Aboalgasm, Aber and Ward, Rupert (2014) Can Digital Drawing Tools Significantly Develop Children’s Artistic Ability and Creative Activity? International Journal of Computational Engineering Research (IJCER), 4 (9). pp. 45-50. ISSN 2250–3005

This study aims to investigate how the new digital art tools can significantly improve children‟s artistic ability and creative activity. This particular research tested 16 students aged 9-10 years old in art classes, with the intention of presenting a model for the development and measurement of technological creativity. It uses a modified TAM technology acceptance model to assess the usefulness of digital art tools. The children were provided with appropriate subjects and techniques to improve their performance with the tools, and the relationship between art, technology and creativity was explored. The results of the project show a general improvement in pupils‟ artistic ability and inventiveness through the development of their technological skills, as well as greater ability to express themselves visually.
