Teaching Painting - A Conference 2015: THE BOOK NOW PUBLISHED BY AMAZON

Something of a belated post having attended this superb conference last year organised by Manchester School of Art and hosted by The Whitworth Gallery.  However, it's worth a blog page given the quality and number of papers delivered on the subject of teaching painting at Undergraduate level.  Most especially how painting can retain (and develop) it's unique scope within Fine Art education, and beyond, against restrictions of commodification/modulerisation etc.  Ultimately, a variety of voices heard over this two day conference but, interestingly, sharing a positive view about the future of painting in Fine Art education albeit through an equally varied lens which referenced some innovative methods of approach and visions.

It's worth keeping an eye on Manchester School of Art's dedicated
website http://teachingpainting.tumblr.com and the most exciting news - the accompanying papers are now published in a book available from
Amazon £14.86 and you can pre-order it now for delivery end September 2016.
