Teaching practice in more depth

 

Workshops. I create workshops which support individuals and group processes through the exploration of a multitude of themes and arts-processes.

Over the past 10 years I have worked with local Schools, Orleans House Gallery, Charities and community groups, facilitating and supporting different individuals and projects including 1:1’s,  universal groups, SEND, adult mental health and dementia groups.

 

 

Young Artists Club. As Artist Educator I run a weekly art group for children aged 8-12, exploring art and the world we live in through research, drawing, dance, music,  print, sculpture, painting and film-making.

Octagon club are a group of young people with additional needs working out of Orleans House Gallery. I have worked with the group since 2008 in various capacities including 1:1 artistic support with individuals in the group, transitioning from home into the group and planning and facilitating larger group projects. Work includes the exploration of different arts-processes and themes including Light (2013) and Beyond the Trees (2015) – the investigation of recycling and nature in art-making on an eco-trail-art. In 20017 we looked at fashion and textiles as well as costume design.

Transitions Art Group is an established group of young adult artists all of whom have some additional need. Most of the group have graduated from an early beginning in the Octagon Club which makes for a very special group of Artists. In 2016 both Transitions and Octagon explored different themes around ‘science of the body’ in an integrative art-science project awarded by the Wellcome Trust.
