Collection Summary

Collection Title
Arthur Hughes Collection
Approximately 300 items, the majority relating to art education. Mostly out of date for teaching today, although useful for historical research into art education. Some books are concerned with children's and young people's general relationship with art and art galleries and museums, not simply in educational terms. Please note however, the collection is concerned with the theory and research of art education/interaction, and although the books are written about children and young people, they are not the intended audience for these books.
