I’ve always had a passion for teaching, and had my heart set on becoming an art teacher. However, whilst I was at university, I saw the funding and support for arts in education reach new lows. I began to think about the importance of art initiatives external to the school curriculum, and thought maybe one day I would set something up to help nurture children’s creativity. When I found out art-K was doing exactly that, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of their team! It also feels great to work for a family owned business, with others who believe in the importance of art and creativity for education and wellbeing.

Laura

Art Club Leader, Haslemere
I wanted to teach kids art outside of the school education system and across a wide age range. Taking on a management position was appealing as I enjoy the responsibility and ability to contribute to the art-K programme. So far, I have put together a Batik workshop and helped develop a watercolour programme for adults. Running adult classes were a pleasant surprise since I’d never considered teaching adults before, but I’m really happy that I do!
 

Sarah

Art Club Leader, Dorking
I love art and, following my masters, I wanted to get a job in my field. I’ve previously taught in schools and knew I enjoyed working with children and sharing my artistic ideas. Art-K was appealing because I could develop my teaching skills and run my own unit whilst being supported by the owners whenever I needed it. As it’s a family-run business I feel like they believe in what they’re doing and we share a common purpose. It’s also exciting to know that there’s an increase in salary over the years, bonuses and opportunity to open my own club in 5 years time.
