Title:The Painter's World: The Training Of Painters
Date:5th April 1990
Summary:THE LIBERAL APPROACH OF TODAY'S ART SCHOOLS SEEMS A FAR CRY FROM THE 'RECIPES' OF ART PASSED ON TO STUDENTS BY 16TH CENTURY MASTERS BUT THE QUESTIONS ARE THE SAME: WHAT DOES A PAINTER NEED TO KNOW? HOW MUCH IS INHERENT TALENT AND HOW MUCH CAN BE LEARNED? 'THE TRAINING OF PAINTERS' EXPLORES THE TECHNIQUES, STYLES AND VALUES THAT HAVE BEEN AT THE HEART OF TEACHING ART FOR GENERATIONS. FILMED AT THE SLADE SCHOOL, ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART AND ROYAL ACADEMY OF ART.
