The Source

Aiming to embed enterprise and employability skills within the fine art curriculum, an Artquest, in collaboration with Wimbledon College of Arts project, The Source, developed a pedagogic framework and teaching resources that would support art tutors to deliver enterprise and employability sessions that were contextualised in relation to their students’ art practices.
