Describe the experience you have had working with children or young people, teaching or facilitating creative processes
I have 6-year-old twins that I have brought up in a creative environment. Encouraging expression through their art and showing them through all the mediums of art.
Why I want to be part of the Creatives in Schools programme and how my involvement will link to my creative practice
I found my passion in my first art class and haven't stopped learning. Through academic and self-led studies I have dabbled in all forms of visual art, refining my knowledge in the forms I have found the most passion with. I would love to be a part of others' journeys of finding their passion. To encourage and aid someone else through their learning would be an incredible experience and duty to do from one artist to another.
