I am passionate about art, drama and science and my educational consultancy work falls into 2 categories: 1) I work with groups of primary age children on creative art projects. Links can be made with science and also with drama. Activities can be created for small groups, classes/year groups and even whole school projects. Each bespoke art project can be planned in collaboration with the school to fit the needs of the children. The art work I create with the children follows the 'art journey' and includes: experimenting with the media; engaging in dialogue about the art; drawing, researching; designing; making; and exhibiting and evaluating. Children develop new skills during the process and value the original art work they create. 2) I also deliver CPD to primary school teachers and ITE trainee-teachers in higher education exploring the links between art and science and drama. My website will tell you a whole lot more and will give you a flavour of my work.


David delivered an engaging and creative project that was appropriately challenging and inspiring. Through a range of activities (sketching, designing, clay working and painting with acrylics) David encouraged the development of the children's pre-existing art skills, whilst also teaching them new techniques. His enthusiasm and passion was infectious. Once one session was over, the children could not wait to begin the next. With David's help and guidance, our children produced amazing artwork. The workshops were the highlight of their final year in primary. I would highly recommend David to any school looking to help enrich their art and science curriculum.
