About Ms Hart.
What is this website for?
I wish to showcase some of my students' superbly creative art & design work. Hopefully it will encourage other students, parents, teachers and the public in general that we have some very talented young individuals in this country.
I would also like to share what is currently interesting me in the art & design world through an Pinterest collection.
And who are you?
Since 2015 I have had the privilege of working as an Art Teacher at West Buckland School in Devon, which has an fantastic Art Department. Here we really encourage the students to find their own way of working and producing the best pieces of art. I am also an Assistant House Parent – I really enjoy the pastoral side of education, which I believe actually helps me become a better academic teacher.
Previously, I worked at the inimitable Christ's Hospital as an Art Teacher (2012 - 2015). I learned a lot from the incredible Art Department at Christ's Hospital. At CH I was also an Assistant House Parent. Prior to working at Christ's Hospital I completed my PGCE, obtained from Brighton University.
Before teaching I worked in the 'outside world' at new-media agency Mind Orchard, where I worked my way from Junior Art Worker to Senior Creative Producer. It was at Mind Orchard organising youth-oriented games testing that re-ignited my drive to go back into education and teach. Here is a short video of some of the work I produced at Mind Orchard:
