The United Kingdom Artist Teacher Scheme (ATS) commissioned a study of the artistic and pedagogical practices of students on a recently established Artist Teacher Scheme MA (ATS MA). The aims of this study were to: investigate the motives and objectives teachers/educators have for undertaking this ATS MA programme, the impact the programme had on their artistic and pedagogical practices and their pupils' learning; and make recommendations for future development of ATS MA programmes. Through the analysis of questionnaires it was found that the ATS MA's strength lies in the development of communities of practice and peer support, artist teachers' renewed confidence in their extended artistic and pedagogical practices, the professional development of artist teachers, and significant development of the art and design curriculum. (Contains 4 tables and 4 figures.)
