During my career as an art teacher, I worked mainly in the secondary sector, but I was also actively involved in primary liaison. I participated in successful placements at several primary schools in Wirral, working with children as young as 7 years of age.
My sessions for younger children are designed to be fun. If required, I can follow the school curriculum, or I can organise flexible art and craft sessions that suit the interests and abilities of your child.
My sessions for young artists can be either 1 hour or no more than 90 minutes. This enables children to maintain their level of concentration, without tiring them out; especially if they have had a busy day at school!
I am DBS checked and I can provide references if required. I am happy for parents to stay during the sessions.
I have recently worked with Frank Lund, a local artist who, with his friends, was responsible for building The Black Pearl, New Brighton's famous driftwood pirate ship.
