purpose of this study is to examine the effects of art education using sensory experiences on
emotional intelligence of infants who reached the age of two. The research participants of this study
consist of 13 infants in an experimental group and 13 infants in a control group. Each infant from
24 to 32 months of age has attended a child care center. Experiments were conducted sixteen times
for eight weeks, twice a week. To accomplish the purpose of this study, the data were collected by
the rating scale of “Observation Instrument for Teachers” modified by Hyojin Kim (2005) from the
emotional intelligence model of Mayer and Salovey (1996). The collected data were treated through
videotaped footage at each session by using the pre-post tests, analysis of covariance, and observation
analysis. The results of this study are as follows: Art activities using sensory experiences have the
effects on the improvement of the emotional intelligence of infants who reached the age of two.
Especially the researchers have found a statistically significant difference on the awareness and
expression of self-emotion, emotion control and restraint of impulse, use of self-emotion, recognition
and consideration of others\' emotion, relationship with teachers, and relationship with peers. Therefore,
the result of this study implies that art activities using sensory experiences can be effective materials
for the improvement of the infants\' emotional intelligence.
