    A child in his early years, soon realizes the fact, that a pen leaves a trail. He learns that the created line is a result of his work. His knowledge is created through the transformation of previous experiences. As a child has a desire to explore, through exploration he learns and develops his skills. His expression is therefore, not limited by a line on a piece of paper, but he continues to seek new ways and that is how he discovers new learnings. The complex process by offering different artistic fields, allows children to connect various elements of the environment into a new – for him – meaningful whole. Therefore, the child's artistic expression is much more than just a product, it is an insight into his perception of the world, thinking and feeling (Lowenfeld, Brittain, 1947). In the theoretical part of the thesis, I focused on a specific segment of the artistic development of pre-school children – it is their ability to transform three-dimensional objects in a two-dimensional form, and vice versa. Art is a natural development, but it is crucial that the environment is supportive and that it allows the child a variety of (art) experiences, which will provide a wide range of new challenges, findings and knowledge. Meaningful and careful preparation of the learning environment, through the use of various artistic fields, is crucial for the child’s process of thinking and his enrichment of new knowledge. I focused on the most represented art area in preschools, drawing and seemingly the contrary, sculpturing. I highlighted the characteristics of both art fields and found their connections. Drawing of the child requires a two-dimensional imaging of a three-dimensional world, while children in sculpturing get the opportunity of feeling the matter. It is the differences between drawing and sculpturing that complement each other. I wanted to emphasize the spontaneity and flexibility that art has. I have endeavored to present the process of teaching, where children have opted a free and spontaneous process, where they discover the artistic material presented to them and at the same time allow them, as individuals, to express their abilities and creativity in our society.
