The philosophy of the artist-teacher is not a new phenomenon. In fact, many artists working within the Bauhaus, nineteenth century Schools of Design, and The Basic Design Movement all applied this method of thinking to their teaching. The Artist-Teacher explores the many facets of this methodology, and the various ways art has been taught over the centuries, using several important artist-teachers (George Wallis, Walter Gropius, Richard Hamilton, Hans Hoffman) to illustrate the rich and deep ways artists are able to facilitate learning.
The Artist-Teacher will serve as a foundational text for those entering the teaching profession at all levels, in addition to inspiring experienced art teachers in all disciplines.
'This is an enjoyable book to read either as a whole or to dip in and out of. It actively encourages the view that teachers should continue with their own practice and let it influence their pedagogy, a tenet that all today’s Artist Teachers would abide by' – Hazel McDougall, iJADE
