    The artistic development of children goes through different developmental stages. The age when each stage appears is set roughly, as children pass through them differently - some faster than the others. Furthermore, some children develop more substages within each stage, while some of them do not. This means that the artistic development occurs in a similar manner in all children, but each child experiences it differently. Children’s genes, environment and one’s own activity influence how each child passes through stages. Therefore, it is interesting to observe the differences and similarities of the artistic development of children who come from the same environment and those who share a similar genetic basis, like siblings and especially twins, triplets, etc. Even though there are many researches concerning the field of artistic development, not many researches were published that deal with identical and fraternal twins or triplets, because there lacks a sufficient sample. Therefore, a comparison of the artistic development of triplets was the main topic of this dissertation. In theoretical part the stages of children’s artistic development were analysed based on the existing studies. Then, previous findings of the researches of the artistic development in identical twins were presented. The empirical part focused on a case study of triplets (aged from 1 to 12 years). Two of them are identical, one fraternal. All triplets are from the same family and live in the same environment. The identical twins have the same genes, while the third sister shares approximately 50% of the same genes. The drawings by them, which have the same theme and were drawn at the same time, were artistically analysed and compared according to the parameters of visual language. Based on that the similarities and differences were determined according to each stage of artistic development. We were especially curious how the identical triplets’ artistic creativity differs in relation to the fraternal triplet’s creativity. The identical twins have the same genes and the same environment, but also each their own will, while the fraternal triplet has partly different genes, shares the same environment as they do, but her own will. According to the existing research and literature, a study was made on how differences and similarities in the artistic development of triplets can be contributed to genes, environment, and one’s own activity.
