Teaching Practice

This page contains work by some of the students under my tutelage. It is a varied collection featuring differing creative disciplines and student levels.

Of course, it is not always easy to retain some of the best student work from the mêlée and rush of teaching practice, following are some selected items.

‘firstly’ :

These images are of a self-initiated show entitled ‘firstly‘, assembled and curated by level 4, 1st year, students at Kingston University.

The diversity, innovation of ideas and presentation would warm the heart of any creative in this country. There is open ended thinking, there is research and there is a willingness to use humour and intellect to challenge concepts head-on.

These students did so well, not only in the work expected of them on their course but in their entrepreneurship in staging this show, inviting industry professionals and convincing their parents that there is some point to all their expenditure and lip-biting too!
