Abstract: The paper aimed at using drawings for assessing the emotional personality of children. It thus explored drawings of some Ghanaian school children. Participant observation of the children and in-depth interviews of guardians, parents, teachers and peers concerning the children were noted. Data analysis showed that drawings can portray temperament in terms of emotions such as happiness, sadness and anger in the size of drawings and content of the drawings. From literature, it was established that art reveals emotion, temperament is the emotional element of personality and that learning is most effective when it links with emotional experience. It is suggested that effectiveness of teaching and learning could be enhanced with teachers’ knowledge of pupils’ temperament.
