Ms Kathy Bor

Senior Lecturer, Primary Art Education

About

I initially taught in Secondary mainstream and off-site education provision for disengaged young people, before embarking on my career as a Specialist art teacher and co-ordinator in Infant and Primary Schools, where I wrote Art Curriculae and  lead on several whole school art projects in a variety of media, including clay, mosaic and stained glass. I was Exhibitions Co-ordinator at the Hackney Teachers Centre, where I also ran INSET in Art.

I then worked concurrently as an art teacher and a lecturer in Art Education at London Metropolitan University for ten years, where the two jobs dovetailed; I enjoyed the perspective which lecturing and being a practitioner gave me.

In 2005, I became Visual Arts Consultant in an Arts Team in Southwark, working in a Cross Arts Team, devising and delivering cross curricular projects which boosted achievement in schools  through the arts.

I have taught at Kingston University since 2009.
