Inspiring art, craft & design CPD workshops

I am committed to inspiring art teachers with new ideas and techniques that will enrich their students’ creative curriculum.

My workshops are friendly, practical, and structured with well paced teaching and learning, suitable for both NQTs and experienced teachers who cover multiple A Level and GCSE examining boards.

All workshops include ideas for progression of skills along with links to relevant artists and makers. As a result, the workshops cover all of the GCSE and A Level Assessment Objectives, particularly AO2 and AO3.

Delivery of the workshops can be in-house, with me visiting your school or college to teach the art teachers in your department, or I can run them in my well equipped and cosy garden studio in Kingston Upon Thames, for up to 3 people at a time. In either situation, tuition can be tailored to individuals needs and interests.

These Continuing Professional Development workshops are suitable for anyone looking to:

  • Increase creative skills and teaching confidence in the classroom.
  • Introduce multidisciplinary approaches to lesson delivery.
  • Suggest innovative ways of using resources.
  • Promote high quality responses from students.
  • Develop strategies for ‘Stretch and Challenge’ activities.
