The claim has been made in art psychology that sensitivity to such relationships as balance, rhythm, harmony, and unity is basic to discrimination of the best in art, or aesthetic judgment; to an understanding of the composition of a picture, or aesthetic analysis; and to the production of paintings of merit. To test this assumption a series of four experimental art courses was conducted to determine if an increase in the understanding of the principles of art through instruction would also bring about an increase in aesthetic judgment, analysis, and production.
