Alternative Models for Art Education (MMAART_08)
Module Tutors: Annie Davey & Claire Robins
Summer Term

This module takes the form of a series of lectures, seminars and visits that investigate histories and contemporary debates surrounding models of art education that operate outside of, or in unusual ways within, traditional sites of education. We will explore a wide range of contexts, from self-organised play groups to museum satellite projects and alternative art schools, to consider the political, economic and social contingencies and pedagogical possibilities offered by working outside of conventional frameworks. Local contexts and sites of education will be considered in relation to global perspectives and the implications of online learning. The module offers you the opportunity to devise a model of education that addresses your research interests and context of teaching or practice.

Assessment is based on a 1000 word proposal for an
alternative model of art education supported by a 4000
word written rationale.
