Teachers Preview with David Nash
All teachers and art coordinators are welcome
Thursday 3 May 2007, 5.30pm
David Nash has worked with schools, university groups, and teachers throughout his career, considering education to be an important element in the development of his work. The preview with Nash provides an unrivalled opportunity for teachers to meet the artist and to gain an insight into his philosophy, his sculptures, the materials he uses, and his working methods.
The preview evening is organised to promote and support school visits to the exhibition.
We hope you will join us. Reminder invitations will be sent to schools nearer the time.
