About your Mentor

About your Mentor

Hope

I have been an artist for my entire adult life. I have worked in a wide range of materials, including mixed media, installation work, photography, videography, and making books. I completed my MA in Fine Art in 2009 followed by a Post Graduate teaching qualification in 2012. This structured learning greatly enhanced my workshop delivery skills, which has been my preferred way of teaching ever since. I have worked with a number of Primary Schools in Kent and Essex as an artist since 2009, devising creative activities that were responsive to both curriculum aims and participants ideas.

Learning aims

Know that paper has a grain and what this means

Strengths to develop

Bookmaking is great for fine motor skills and the use of small hand tools.
