 Abstract

This study investigated relationships between visual imaging abilities
(imaging capacity and imagery control) and academic performance in 146 Fine
Arts students (31 men, 115 women). Mean age was 22.3 yr. (SD= 1.9; range
20-26 yr.). All of the participants who volunteered for the experiment
regularly attended classes and were first, second, or third year students.
For evaluation of imaging abilities, the Spanish versions of the Gordon
Test of Visual Imagery Control, the Vividness of Visual Imagery
Questionnaire, the Verbalizer-Visualizer Questionnaire, and Betts'
Questionnaire Upon Mental Imagery were used. Academic performance was
assessed in four areas, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, and Complementary
Subjects, over a three-year period. The results indicate that imagery
control was associated with academic performance in Fine Arts. These
findings are discussed in the context of previous studies, and new lines of
research are proposed.
