I create mostly original resources for my art lessons based on my favourite artists. I work in London. As my students are from BAME backgrounds, I like my students to study artists from a range of backgrounds so they can identify with them. I want all voices of my students to be heard. I hope you enjoy and are inspired by my resources.
