It is with a mixture of anticipation and relief that I announce I am now Programme Leader for Drawing and Painting at the Open College of the Arts – the open learning department of the University of the Creative Arts. The role is one day per week so once the dust settles will still leave time for my practice and research, but I hope this will be another creative practice in its own right. The students at OCA are quite simply amazing and come from every walk of life and every age group. I am immensely proud of the inclusive and diverse character of the institution which is an educational charity in its own right as well as part of UCA. If you are a generous, enthusiastic, thoughtful painter or draughtsperson and think you might be able to contribute to the development of the painting or drawing departments at OCA as a tutor, please do get in touch with me. Equally, if you have always thought about doing a degree but are now in a position where fixed time bricks and mortar institutions are not going to work for you, take a look at www.oca.ac.uk and see what you could be getting up to.
