Drawing Experimental workshop
Primary and Secondary School Education Examples.2009-Current
The Tower of London, Historic Royal Palaces
I have worked with HRP on a series of freelance projects exploring and engaging students with the history of The Tower of London using the Tower of London as a base for exploring not only creative expression but also history, geometry and numeracy, literacy, history, cultural identity and architecture. Recently I worked with a group of primary school children and taught them geometry and perspective first through step by step drawing and then moving into making a collaborative 3d Tower of London Model. Through drawing, collage, model making and painting through workshops. I have also planned and delivered a 4 week family interactive set of art exercises as well as drop in family workshops.
