About Kingston School of Art

Staff teaching on this course

The Fine Art & Art History BA(Hons) is led by Course Director Helen Potkin

Helen Potkin is an art historian interested in the relationships between art and education and the role of participation in both. As Course Leader for the BA (Hons) Fine Art and Art History, she is engaged with the various ways in which history, theory and practice interact.

Helen is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, interested in pedagogy and the nature of learning, in and as art. Specifically, she explores the role of participatory practices in contemporary art and how participation itself is central to the learning process.

Lately Helen has been working on a project in which students and herself co-created the second-year module as a way of designing a relevant, dynamic and current curriculum. Helen speaks and writes widely on the topic; most recently in October 2017 at the Equality Challenge Unit's Annual Conference, Inclusivity, intersectionality, action: moving forward the equality agenda in higher education.
