Trish McGlone is a Primary Teacher with over twenty years of classroom experience in Primary, Nursery and Support for Learning environments. She has also worked at the University of Dundee as a Tutor in the School of Education. Trish has a current and valid PVG registration. Over recent years, she has enhanced her classroom experience by gaining membership of the National Working Group for Art and Design at Education Scotland. This collaboration works to develop and shape curriculum design in Art and Design at national level. Within this background experience in education, Trish has consistently demonstrated her naturally avid interest, passion and skill in art and design. She has always found time to produce her own work at locations such as the Seagate Printmakers' Workshop, Dundee and DCA. Trish graduated with an upper second class degree in English and History from the University of Glasgow, followed by a post-graduate certificate in Primary Teaching at St. Andrew's College, Glasgow. Throughout her career to date, she has always placed a firm emphasis on the importance of art and design in any learning environment. She has experienced the effect of creative thinking and the principles of self-expression through art at first hand over many stages of development. Trish believes that every child is an artist and has a story to tell! She has created many opportunities for young artists to exhibit their work in public locations, such as an exhibition entitled 'Dundee's Great' at the University of Dundee in 2014, for example. She has also used many different themes and subject areas in which to inspire bold new children's work, such as the 'St. Andrew's Honeybee Project in 2013 in Dundee. This natural history exploration inspired exciting artwork from children aged from 3-6 years. As a result, this project was widely received and enjoyed national acclaim. Trish is married with two sons. She is now keen to share all her experience and knowledge to provide a fun, positive hub of creativity!
