In this presentation we intend to present the results of our international research study about the interests of young people aged 15-18 years old as they are depicted in their drawings. The research was conducted during 2006-2008 by a team of art teachers and art education researchers. During two years several drawings were collected in schools in Israel, USA, Hungary, Mozambique, Australia,Brazil, Spain, Croatia, Hong Kong, Greece and Portugal. From that study some drawings were selected to illustrate the main themes selected by young people and their main concerns, feelings and expectations. From our results we realised the need for understanding young peoples’ own culture, its uniqueness and the influence of globalisation in the images produced by the youngsters.
