In the art industry, both the theoretical and practical aspects of education are necessary. China and the UK have different approaches when it comes to education both in the structure of learning and its fundamental purpose. As more and more Chinese students study artistic subjects in the UK, it is necessary to review art education comprehensively.

As part of the special feature in this issue, we interviewed various educational institutions, artistic organisations and individuals. We discussed the differences between the current educational system in art and other subjects, to provide our readers with a broader perspective of the present state of art education and the direction of its development in the UK. Different methods of teaching will influence the way art develops in British & Chinese culture.

We hope this topic can stir up conversation in the British artistic industry and educational sectors in both China and the UK.

在整個藝術環境當中,學術體系和藝術教育是不可或缺的一環。中英兩國不論是在學術體系還是在教育理念方面都存在很多差異,隨著越來越多的中國學生來到英國學習藝術和相關學科,我們覺得應該針對藝術教育問題進行一次儘量廣泛的探討。此次專題我們採訪了英國各類藝術教育機構、組織和個人,嘗試從一個立體的視角來考察英國藝術教育的現狀和不同類別教育系統和組織之間的異同,希望給廣大讀者了解英國當下藝術教育現狀、特色及發展方向提供一個線索。

同時,不同的學術教育體系也會深刻影響到中英兩國文化藝術領域的實踐和發展,我們也希望通過此次的專題能夠啟發中英藝術界及教育界人士的思考,互鑑短長。
