The Learning from the Masters conference will explore the role played by art history
in the teaching practices of artists in art academies, private art schools, art colleges,
polytechnics, and universities.
Papers will address how teaching practice has been influenced by the historical
perspective, logging amongst other things reactions to historic teaching collections;
to past theoretical discourses on ornament, design and academic art; to the provision of art historical courses in art schools in the post-Coldstream era.
Date: 9-10 May 2008
Location: Sherwell Centre, University of Plymouth
