Research output: Contribution to JournalArticlepeer-review


The study introduces unique research results on the topic of artistically gifted and talented children and young people, and their interactions with the environment and exhibitions of Slovak galleries. Artistically gifted teenagers (N = 32) from different regions of Slovakia participated in the research. Based on the research results, we consider the gallery environment stimulating for artistic talent of a person in a specific way. The authors of the study confirmed that in the observed group of artistically gifted teenagers, their artistic talent was positively impacted. Progress was captured in specific components of artistic expression (imagination, fantasy and creativity), which was identified as direct influence of visiting galleries.
