Artist as Educator / Technologist
I am a teacher and facilitator specialising in Digital Media, Photography, Film Making, Media Studies, Digital history & Language (EFL).
Using improvisation, and a high level of "digital fluidity" into my sessions, I provide students, of all ages, a fun and exciting approach to learning using a wealth of artistic and digital diciplines.
We have fun in my sessions. I love technology, I love communication and I encourage human connection. I am interested in people and I like to use my practice to offer a platform for people to ask questions that are relevant tho their lives. I feel that these things are not separate entities and my enthusiasm for sharing these ideas is contagious. I have a great deal or experience in helping disengaged students find a way into projects and eventually, into finding their voice creatively.
Having worked for over 15 years as a freelancer, I specialise in bringing "ready to go" projects that can be adapted to suit the needs of the client, or I can be rapidly trained to fit the needs of an existing template.
A native English speaker (fluent Spanish) I have worked in the UK, Asia, Spain, Australia and the USA in many roles including Art Teacher, Language teacher, Artist & Educator, Form Tutor, Mentor & Facilitator.
Following a lifetime of involvement in the digital arts and production I have build a robust, dynamic and flexible approach to teaching. I have a certTESOL and a degree in fine art (BAHons). I hold a current UK DBS.
Here are some "off the shelf" projects which can be delivered in schools or workshops. These projects are flexible and can be adapted to fit a particular theme or scheduling requirement.
