Abstract:

Sybil Marshall recounts eighteen years' work at Kingston County Primary School in Cambridgeshire, beginning with a glance back at her own childhood (and her experience of 'art' as it was then 'taught'), and ending with the prospect of her going at last to Cambridge to read the English tripos, as a mature scholar with a bursary from the Extra-Mural Board. The essential point about her method- the 'symphonic method' as she calls it- is that art takes its rightful place as an element in the whole business of education. The plates reproduce the children's work.--[book jacket].
