Freelance Art's Education
Since completing my Masters in Fine Art in 2005 at Edinburgh College of Art, I have taught art and art history for a number of different Galleries and councils. In both Edinburgh, Fife, Aberdeen and Glasgow and my employers include institutions such as the National Galleries of Scotland. My practice as an artist is extensive but concentrates mainly on drawing, animation, printmaking and sculpture. This diverse practice enables me to teach in a wide variety of subjects to a high level.
I see the education work I undertake as an extension of my art practice. Each workshop I devise, research and lead is created with the idea of making art accessible to everyone. I teach and tutor to a diverse range of groups including nursery, primary, secondary, as well adults and individuals with special needs.
Please get in-touch if like more information or have a project you would like me to would like to see examples of previous workshops.
