Using some of the evidence collected as part of a doctoral study of school-based leaders of art in the UK, this paper presents the most recent and emerging models of leadership in art. The data suggests likely attributes of those in leadership positions and the effects on the activities in which those individuals engage.

As a case study of over two hundred art leaders, the challenges are clearly presented. They are more deeply explored through interviews and discussions about attitudes to artworks and their use with learners in classroom as well as by analyzing paper records kept by leaders. The study raises important issues for those who might want to learn from the situation in the UK.
