Ms Lucy Renton

School Director Learning & Teaching

About

Since graduating from the Royal College of Art in 1990, I have worked part time in higher education in a variety of roles, whilst continuing my practice as artist and curator, and engaging in pedagogic research through a number of funded projects. I have been a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2004 and have a particular interest in  e-learning, assessment and feedback and critical pedagogy. As one of the School Directors of Learning & Teaching I work with staff on all aspects of the student experience. I continue to teach fine art students as a visiting lecturer across the UK.

My personal fine art practice addresses the experience of excess in colour, repetition, and ornament, with recent artworks using an expanded definition of printmaking, drawn and painted figure and line, and appropriated domestic objects and patterns.
