Professional Training of the Artist.
Australian National Advisory Committee for Unesco, Canberra.
This document is an English-language abstract (approximately 1,500 words) describing the problems and concerns that the advisory committee had over the training of artists in Australia. The general failure of secondary schools to produce students ready for art schools is noted and remedies are suggested. The formation of an Australian Association for Art and Design Education is discussed. The present quality and standards of art education, and its content and administration in the various states of Australia are discussed and found wanting; many recommendations are made as to teacher training, examinations, travel grants, student exchange, staff interchange, course flexibility, and other matters.
