The complete proceedings from the 2013 Drawing Research Network Conference held this past October in New York, hosted by Columbia University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, are now available online in pdf form. This is an invaluable document, presenting a range of papers that examine the relationship between pedagogy, drawing, and cognition, from practitioners worldwide. From the links between medicine and drawing, to drawing and a philosophy of mind, the papers cover vast and deep territory. Should you be interested in collaborative drawing, my paper on three collaborative drawing projects begins on page 166. Be sure to look at past years' conference proceedings as well.
