The Maltonian Web


a basic course in art

I found this book on a clearout pile in the library, and rescued it, having recognised it as a book written by a Malton School art teacher, Mr Lawley, in 1965.

The book is interesting in its reflection of current thinking and practice in school art of the time, and 22 or the 36 pages of artwork inside was produced by Malton students. They are not named anywhere, just noted as, for example, 'girl age 14', 'boy age 13'. The jacket cover is 'based on a painting by a girl age 17'.

One day some content, including photographs, may be scanned and put on this site. For now just a taster.
