Miss A. J. Brady
Subject Leader Art & Design | P.G.C.E / B.Des (Hons)
Since graduating with a Design Degree I have taught Art & Design for sixteen years as a Head of Performing Arts Faculty in Liverpool and a Subject Leader at Accrington Academy with a team of three and still love what I do. I have always been very passionate about art and creativity and am really intrigued about project based learning, cross curricular projects across subjects and enthusing students to work to their strengths. In my career I have led Gifted and Talented projects, coordinated large full year enrichment projects and Big Draw (Art & Science projects) projects with whole year groups. I am proud of the fact that I have been given the opportunity to lead a large European Erasmus project with students from Accrington Academy along with five other countries to make an European Funded collaborative animation. Accrington Academy is a fantastic place to work and consistently challenges my approach to teaching and leading.
Mrs D. Devine-Harding
Excellence Lead in Technology | BA (HONS) Visual Arts / PGCE
My passion for Art first started when I was at primary school. Having been told from an early age I was creative and hands on. I found I had a skill for drawing and creating 3 Dimensional work from either the eye or igniting my imagination. Whilst I was at University, I was adamant to start a career in teaching. I volunteered at my previous high school to gain experience within the Art department which I took part in Art sessions to students interested in taking part in a community based project. I helped students find a skill that they didn’t think they had and turned into something they achieved successfully. I love to teach Art and Photography. When I am not working with students at school I am keeping active at Crossfit. And to squeeze more time out I create and make keepsake items for family and friends as gifts.
Miss L. Tickle
Teacher of Art and Design | BA (HONS) Fine Art / PGCE
I have always been interested in art and design; it was always my favourite subject at school and throughout college. I had decided I wanted to become an art and design teacher before I even attended university. During university I volunteered at Manchester Art Gallery as a gallery educator and at my previous sixth form college teaching a variety of creative A-levels. My main interests and skills are drawing and illustration. I enjoy teaching across the disciplines from graphic design, fashion, sculpture and painting.
I like that we don’t do boring stuff, my teacher has always got an activity to do. This makes the lessons more fun and enjoyable. That’s why I am picking Art for G.C.S.EKian Cambridge
