2013 Annual Tutor Conference
We hold our annual general meeting every year in Bristol UK at the Alveston Hotel and and it is open to all of our tutors and associates. We had a very good turn out this year, only four tutors were unable to make it, those of us who did attended thoroughly enjoy meeting.
Each year we have plenty of topics to discuss, we chat about how the college is running, any changes that are being planned, how the courses are running, and if the tutors have any concerns or feedback. Of course the most important topic that interests our students the most is - who won this years competition!
We take a good amount of time looking at each entry and we all have a chance to comment on the artwork which is shown in the big screen in the conference room. We took some candid shots through the day, the photos are annotated so students can recognise their tutors. By scrolling down you can see the tutors all sitting round viewing the competition artwork. You can view the entries, finalists and the winners on our Competitions page. We are all looking forward to meeting up again in 2014 and of course running the next London Art College competition too!
