Description The text is focused on drawing peculiarities of individuals from Youth Detention Centres. This text focuses on motivations and spontaneous artistic expression of the delinquents. The artistic handwriting not only allows us partialy to uncover the depth of the artist, but also uncovers his opinions, attitudes, motivations and values which are sometimes unconsciously transformed into art symbols. Through the art creation one opens himself up to others and reveals his secret sides. Studying these artistic handwriting we can find out what kind of a life the artist lives and what kind of an inner life he has. Each person has a unique and distinctive handwriting. A common pencil and paper were the agents used for research due to the fact that these agents offer many opportunities to capture the artist's mood. Art creativity and imagination should represent for the artist a creative, playful, joyful and spontaneous activity. It would therefore be a shame to ignore a sincere artistic expression.
