Testimonials from schools

"Your expertise and enthusiasm is greatly appreciated. Once again the children have produced outstanding artworks which we are thrilled with."

- Staff at Eskdale School


"Kathy's innovative and creative approach in assisting children to explore a variety of media immediately engages them. She allows children to use their own ideas while simultaneously guiding them towards trying new ideas and skills. Kathy offers the children experiences in mixed media in a calm and supportive manner which inspires confidence, creative thinking and a sense of ownership.
The children come away with a piece of art work they are proud of.  They are able to discuss what they have learnt and parent feedback has been extremely positive."

— Pam Hastings, Visual Arts facilitator, Taradale Primary School

Primary and Intermediate Workshops

These workshops are designed to cater for the individual requirements of each school and can vary in length from half day to full week programmes. The workshops offered cover a wide range of techniques from woodcuts, drypoints to mixed media printmaking. The outcomes can range from a small print edition to artists books or larger collaborative works. I am happy to discuss with schools the projects they may have in mind.
