Art budget / Capitation

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by cooper73, Feb 15, 2011.

  1. We all know that money is limited, and that we have to stick to a budget, but what is a reasonable budget, my department seems to be really tight on cash, we have approx 2000 students on roll, with about 300 gcse students and 70 A-Level students studing art and photography. Combined budget is £7000. What do you think, how does this compare?
  2. We have 1100 on roll. Currently 100 GCSE pupils studying art and photography. Our budget remains to be seen or this year but previously it has been around £1500. I suspect it will be much less this year.
  3. You don't need a budget! Get out and find some nice coloured muds and get your students to paint on walls! For extra points, don't forget Geography (where was that rich, deep brown stuff? No, no Kylie! Not that! Don't touch... Aw; too late) and History (but don't let them light a fire in the middle of the room - or for that matter hunt and roast the caretaker's dog) as cross-curricular links. Lacking aurochs and mammoths to paint you could always update the theme and get them to paint traffic. Just not when it's moving.
    Real future in management, then policy making, even politics, don't you think?

  4. I imagine that your sarcasm reflects your frustrations. We have joked about painting with mud on walls many times!
  5. Not meant to be sarcasm as such - more like satire; being a Celt I get satirical in the face of hostility, and being Welsh means that a Tory government are automatically the enemy!

    Seriously, though - why not have a go at cave-painting as an artistic style? With mud?

    Pantomines average is roughly I recall having. £7000 is not bad at all.
