ART.ZIP Issue 10


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.
