Sally Parkinson gained a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design at Central/St. Martin’s School of Art and qualified to teach art following a PGCE course at Leicester’s De Montfort University. She is an experienced Art teacher, having taught in Norfolk for over 25 years – mostly the secondary school age range and more recently as an Art specialist in primary schools.
Sally has run her own extra curricular art clubs in schools around Norfolk and is a personal tutor for pupils studying GCSE and B Tec Art and design courses. She has run workshops for different organisations including: the Kingswood Educational Centre, team teaching a series of workshops to primary teachers at the UEA in Norwich and collagraph workshops to pupils staying on a residential run by The National Trust. She has had prizewinners in The Royal Norfolk Show School’s Art competition for the past 5 years.
Sally runs children’s art clubs using a wide range of media. She enjoys printmaking and likes to use recycled material so that children can continue creating at home with inexpensive materials. Her ethos is one of wanting every child to have fun and not be worried about taking a creative risk. She believes Art often allows even the less confident child to shine.
