Tim Curtis led our four 2D & 3D Mark-making projects. Tim is primarily a visual artist with a love of drawing. He used to be a teacher and Deputy Head then started concentrating on working as an artist full time in 2007, but he is still passionate about teaching and art education. He always aims to make his projects exciting learning experiences, and believes strongly that art is a very powerful way of enriching other areas of study, including science.
Tim has worked with people aged 3 to 83 on hundreds of community and education projects with health agencies, councils, charities, arts organisations, community groups, businesses, children’s centres, primary schools, secondary schools and special schools. He is currently artist in Residence at Forster’s Bistro and Forster College in Bradford. His artwork is regularly selected for exhibition in galleries across Yorkshire and commissioned for various civic and public settings.
As well as painting and drawing, Tim makes wall murals, mosaics, films, animations and sculptures. That gave him a great range of creative skills to draw on while working with his four Change groups to explore a variety of science topics including Light and Electricity Circuits, Everyday Materials and Living Things & Habitats.
