Dartington College of Arts - Learning by Doing: A Biography of a College
Sam Richards

Paperback, 509 pages

"If you are interested in the arts, in the arts history of the twentieth century and beyond, and in the ways these can be taught at all educational levels from nursery to PhD, you should know about [Dartington College of Arts]".

In this unique book, Sam Richards relates the life story of the internationally renowned Dartington College of Arts, from its earliest days as the focus of Dorothy and Leonard Elmhirst's rural regeneration project, right up until its relocation to Falmouth in 2010. As a former student and part-time lecturer at the college, Richards tells the story from the inside via interviews, documents and personal reflection, placing the college in the context of both The Dartington Hall Estate and the wider social, political and artistic developments of the time.

Sam Richards - a pianist, improviser and composer, as well as a writer and broadcaster - is also the author of three other acclaimed books: Sonic Harvest (1992), John Cage as... (1996) and The Engaged Musician (2013).
