Teaching Art in School?

Classroom Teaching Videos

At Artist in School, we understand the importance of teaching art because the pressure art education is under. So we have made our Famous Artist videos FREE for showing to primary (elementary) and secondary school children in the UK and beyond.
(Please Note: some jurisdictions may have tighter restrictions on what can and can’t be shown. If in doubt, view the video before using in school.)

Our inspiring Famous Artist educational videos cover the dramatic episodes of the artist’s lives, exploring their motivations, influences and achievements because kids find them fascinating. The videos should provide a brilliant compliment to art lessons.

Paul Priestley

My Expertise

My name is Paul Priestley and I taught art in schools for 25 years. After leaving teaching, I set up own business – Artist in School – creating the lives of artists and delivering art workshops in schools. They became very popular but demand soon outstripped my ability to fulfill it.

I needed a solution because visiting a school and teaching art meant I could only be in one place at a time. After moving house I had a new studio, so the solution to my problem became obvious. I created videos of Famous Artists and How to Draw videos for primary / elementary, middle, high and secondary schools to be accessed via the internet.

Teachers, now my famous artist videos can come to your school.
