About Me

 

 

 

Meet Nicki

I am an Art Teacher, Artist, Art Therapist and a Mother of 2.

Over the last 30 years I have been facilitating a variety of art groups, classes and workshops with children through to adults.

I am passionate about helping people develop creative thought and inspire imagination. I believe my role as a teacher is to encourage self expression; whilst helping people develop their own unique style with confidence.

Whether it be through painting, drawing, designing, collage or any other art form.

Art teaching for me has never just been about doing a pretty picture or completing a task.
 

Yes ! These things can be important but the value I see is far greater.

 

I created Artforkidz as a place where people can come and be nurtured in their creativity. For me teaching is all about inviting people to experiment and express themselves in their own unique way.
