It is always going to be of interest to know what ideas you are exploring with your pupils and colleagues. If you aren’t teaching yet, keep an eye on the blog for interesting opportunities that you can take advantage of while you are looking for a post.

Check out the New Art Gallery Walsall website for information on the work that Bob and Roberta Smith has done in the Epstein Archive. here’s the link http://www.thenewartgallerywalsall.org.uk/whats-on/event/bob-and-roberta-smiths-epstein-archive-gallery-0
Bob and Roberta Smith’s work here has a lot of educational potential in terms of unlocking meaning in older art works.
