"I Run My Classes along the Lines of Dad's Army"
Adults Learning, v23 n1 p32-35 Aut 2011
Few artists are as closely associated with a single educational institution as Maggi Hambling--still fewer with an institution that specialises in the education of adults. Her relationship with Morley College began more than 40 years ago, but soon blossomed into enduring mutual affection. She was a substitute for a substitute on a Monday afternoon painting class in the autumn of 1969. For her, teaching is a serious matter. Hambling's own great teacher and mentor was painter Arthur Lett-Haines. One thing Hambling tries to avoid is teaching "a particular way of drawing and painting." She makes a point of encouraging students to experiment in order to find their own style. After 42 years, Hambling's affection for Morley is undiminished. "I do believe in helping Morley College become a centre of excellence," she says. "It's always had a great reputation for excellence for its music but there's been a flourishing arts department there for a very long time."
