About me

The primaryartclass is lead and run by me, Emily. I believe that all children are entitled to an art education that is inspiring and diverse, one which sparks a love of art as well as develops skills in a range of materials.

I have over 10 years of classroom experience and have held Leader of Art roles in both primary and secondary schools in the state and private sector. I have a fine Art degree and competence in a range of practical skills as well as maintaining a passionate interest in the arts, and education.In my teaching I have been consistently rated as ‘outstanding’ in all areas. I have a well-respected current classroom practice, in addition to the work I do at The Primary Art Class.

I am the author of Teaching Primary Art and Design, published by Bloomsbury and out in October 2017. Pre order here.

I have suggestions for your school that are absolutely practical and implementable by you, because they are developed by an actual school teacher and art specialist.
