Milestones of the NSCAD Drawing Lab,
1998 to present
How does restricting vision of a scene with masking or filtering affect drawing from observation? is submitted to the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. A report on research by drawing lab members: John Christie, Mathew Reichertz, Bryan Maycock, Jack Wong and Raymond Klein. The project was inspired by Livingstone’s discussion of Mona Lisa's ephemeral “smile” and the common guidance to students that they draw using peripheral vision or squinting to reduce fine details. Using masking or filtering, we sought to see how people draw carefully constructed scenes from observation while we controlled what they saw.
The Drawing Lab is awarded its third SSHRC Grant (Insight) – to investigators Raymond Klein, Mathew Reichertz, John Christie and Amanda Burke (Nipissing University) with Bryan Maycock and Tim Fedak (NS Museum) as collaborators.
