A study is described which seeks to quantify the benefits of studio art training on students’ analytical capabilities in a sophomore level statics course. Based on a drawing quality rubric developed for the study, it was shown that students’ drawings of a 3-D engineering system improved significantly after participating in a studio art module. Additionally, students who took part in the studio art module demonstrated better performance on a three-dimensional statics refresher problem than those who received no art training, six weeks after the studio art module was conducted.
