Resources for teachers
We have worked with an art teacher, Trystan Wilson from Chew Valley School to create a resource pack on the artist William Scott. William Scott is Bath’s most famous painter since Gainsborough. He lived for most of his life near Bath, first in Hallatrow (1946-65) and later in Coleford (1965-89). He also taught for ten years as Senior Painting Master at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham Court. Download the pack below.
