There has been controversy and debate in the press on this issue in the past year, triggered by suggestions from the art critic Jacob Willer that traditional artistic techniques are being lost because of current teaching practices in art schools. Professor Talbot has addressed this criticism, arguing for an open-ended approach while offering students practical workshops in specific skills.
Newcastle University Retired Staff Society members are invited for coffee adjacent to the lecture theatre from 12.30pm. The RSS welcomes FotH members to what promises to be a fascinating lecture but it is essential that you email Richard Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org before 31st October to register your interest.
