KS3 Art - Artist Teachers



The "Artist Teacher Scheme" is a national programme that runs half-termly CPD courses for teachers who are artists.

The aim is to encourage teachers to develop or regain their own personal practice as contemporary artists. Artist Teachers focuses on the experience of one art teacher, Darren O'Connor from Welling Specialist Art School, as he takes part in one of the scheme's Saturday workshops at The Study Gallery in Poole.

The workshop is inspired by the design exhibition at The Study Gallery, an area the workshop organisers feel is often neglected in the curriculum. The programme looks at the use of the workshop for the participants as an individual artists, as well as how it relates to their work as a teacher.
