BARRON-WELSH ART SCALE (BWAS)

Was originally developed in 1952 by Frank X. Barron and George S. Welsh, both U.S. psychologists. The scale involves participants indicating either a like or dislike for 86 different black and white figures which were specifically selected to differentiate between the typical judgements of artists and nonartists. The Barron-Welsh Art Scale has been used as a smaller part of a larger test of personality in the past.

BARRON-WELSH ART SCALE (BWAS): "The Barron-Welsh Art Scale has been used as a smaller module of larger tests looking at the whole psychi of the individual instead of just their artistic interpretation."
