About This Site


As an artist and qualified teacher of Art & Design, Lydia has been teaching Art for almost ten years both in the UK and in International Schools around the world, from Kazakhstan to Cayman Islands. 

This website is a platform to share some of those artistic experiences with students, parents, colleagues and clients and perhaps open debate about the provision for Visual Arts Education around the world and the importance of its place in the curriculum.
