The study examined the effects that repetition of visual and verbal modes has on interpretative drawing abilities of 11-15 years old secondary school students in South Western Nigeria. Subjects of study were 60 male and 60 female non-art oriented students. Samples were randomly selected and stratified into two groups A and B. The experimental group viewed repetitive visual materials of folksongs from posters while the control group had oral presentation of the folklore. Descriptive statistics were used to analyse the data. Results showed that females were better in comprehensions while males out-performed the females in drawing.
