My teaching experience includes working at various art colleges at several different levels including Foundation and Degree (Fine Art, Graphic Design, Illustration).


We started Brasspoint in 2014 with just 3 students and have built the school from there with around 80-90 artists now passing through each week.


Our teaching methodology is designed to help students develop their creativity through the exploration of methods and materials as well as building an understand of the processes involved in generating ideas and concepts.



Both the Art and Design GCSE and A Level at Brasspoint are 2 year courses with one 2 hour class each week.
