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 – Artist in School – involved re-creating the lives of artists in schools and running practical art workshops in the style of Van Gogh, Claude Monet and other artists 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 I decided to create, Artist in School – online art history videos for everyone. Now, I have people all over the world watching my famous artist and visual arts videos on YouTube and I very much appreciate their support and comments.
