Ramses Wissa Wassef

Through out the last three months, we tried to look into the history of the creation of public elementary and higher arts education schools in Egypt. We are doing this through focusing on the establishment of The Egyptian Ornamentations School (which became Faculty of Applied Arts) in the first half of 20th century and the development of art education curriculums in primary schools during the same period. Now, we try also to examine the colonial influence on art education and pedagogies. Our research takes the case of Ramses Wissa Wassef in building his art centre as a model to explore the impact of western ideas on methodologies of teaching art and crafts in Egypt on both the governmental and non-governmental levels.
