Article: Art School Lite
Steve Cox has been teaching painting and drawing at art schools around Melbourne for the last 30 years. However, over the last few years he has witnessed the systematic eradication of drawing and painting from the art school experience. Originally Steve imagined this must have been a local administrative mistake, but it appears to be a global phenomenon. There are many who believe that painting and drawing are irrelevant to the future facing Contemporary Art. Has the concept of art that once sustained painting and had its day? Steve believes students are now facing ‘Art School Lite’.
