Grade school – base period of formation and development spatial representations of the child. The importance of spatial representations in human life confirmed by studies of many scientists. They are a means to create a picture of the world, prepare the student for independent practical and intellectual activity. However, the actual level of development of spatial representations in primary school children is not high enough, to successfully use them in the learning process. We propose to develop spatial concepts child by means of graphic activity. During the study we have confirmed the hypothesis that, that art provides all the necessary conditions.

Key words: spatial representation, perception of space, the fullness of the image, breadth of operating a spatial manner, space of the picture plane the special, properties of objects, representational activities
