My name is Emma and I have loved art from a very young age. I qualified as a primary teacher in 2006 and soon discovered that, due to timetable restraints, there was not enough time dedicated to the arts at school. I was often seeing children with low confidence being taken out of a rare art lesson to do more maths and English.
I believe that we should value art as a subject more as being creative makes us feel good, increases our self confidence and helps us think in different ways.
As an artist and a teacher, it was the logical choice to bring my two passions together to create Go Sketch Club!
I believe in teaching children that there is no such thing as 'good art' and 'bad art', only art we like and don't like. Everyone likes different art! We celebrate 'mistakes' as 'opportunities' within the creative process.
Go Sketch Club aims to develop young artists into self confident, imaginative and creative thinking adults of tomorrow.
