Teaching Art in School?
Classroom Teaching Videos
At Artist in School, we understand the importance of teaching art because we know the pressure art education is under. That’s why our Famous Artist videos are FREE. Show them to primary (elementary) and secondary school children in the UK and beyond as many times as you like.
(Please Note: some jurisdictions may have tighter restrictions than the UK on what can and can’t be shown. If in doubt, view the video before using in school.)
Our inspiring Famous Artist videos cover the dramatic episodes of the artist’s lives, exploring their motivations, influences and achievements. The videos will be a brilliant addition to any art lesson.
How I put myself inside Van Gogh’s bedroom
Find out how I made a model of Van Gogh’s bedroom at Arles and using a little green screen wizardry, filmed myself inside it.
Imagine teaching art in primary school, or an art lesson in secondary school and being inspired with a Artist in School, Famous Artist video. Children will be thrilled to learn insights into the life of an artist, because they will gain a greater understanding of the artist’s work.
Children will understand why and how the artist created the paintings and drawings they did.
Suitably inspired, imagine what your children or students could create!

Let's get to know each other
My name is Paul Priestley, I taught art in schools for many years before leaving to set up my own art business. The business involved re-creating the lives of artists in schools and running practical art workshops in the style of the artist for children of all ages. I travelled to schools all over England and Wales.
Unfortunately, it became too successful and I couldn’t cope with the demand, so decided to create online videos for schools. Now, I have schools all over the world watching my videos on YouTube.
