Work as an Artist Educator – some examples

Young Artists Club. As Artist Educator I ran a weekly art group at Orleans House Gallery (2015-2019) 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 from 2008 to its closure in 2018. My various capacities included 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 environmentalism in Beyond the Trees (2015) – the investigation of recycling and nature in art-making on a woodland eco-trail-art. In 2018 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.

Individual, one to one Arts mentorship:

I have engaged in one to one’s since 2008, supporting with in the community and family homes through art making. My specialist area is working with individuals with special needs and have had great success in supporting individuals to establish and develop their own arts practice (references on request). Most recently I have been mentoring a young woman who cannot be in normal schooling for health reasons. I developed a programme of activity tailored to bring her potential to the fore.
