5. Conclusion AARON and Rose were spawned in part from a useful exchange of ideas between AI and the study of drawing. Computer programming is uniquely situated as a representational medium for embodying the drawing process as it has the property of being active. The chosen medium inspired their creation but the dominant techniques of the period also limited them. Thus they neglected the process by which drawing develops. Drawing theory is currently distanced from AI, which now concentrates on adaptive systems with emergent properties that can learn from experience.

Compartmentalise children’s continuous behaviour into a series of discreet stages. The final stage of these models almost always culminates in an ‘end-state’ of visually realistic perspective drawing. These discreet stages can then be analysed and described in detail within the context of the information processing metaphor.
