Kate set up Hackney Children’s Art School as a pathway to becoming a teacher. Primary Art teaching, the area which Kate specializes in, is much neglected and yet these formative years are crucial in a child’s cognitive and visual understanding.
Drawing is a great skill to teach kids this age, it can connect many areas within the national curriculum for a child and so help build really confident mark makers and skilled learners. It is Kate’s belief that using professional designers to teach young children helps create better designers and more creative children.
Kate teaches at Halley House School and runs children’s art workshops with Craft Central – Sign up on the art school news letter also see Kate Hodgson jewellery Instagram for images and info of the teaching.
