Volume 17.2   1998



This paper summarises a presentation made at the InSEA conference held in Glasgow during July 1997. It concerns recent developments and initiatives using artists, designers and students in Scottish schools. During the presentation the conference had the opportunity to view the results of collaboration between artists, students and school children aged between 10 and 14 years. These projects took place over a period of five to six months, and used visual artists to expand and enhance the art activities normally taking place in the schools. The paper reports on the following areas: developments in Art and Design Education in Scotland - the context for artists in schools, Artists and Education - two case studies and future developments - towards 1999.
