"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)

Pui Lee offers creative workshops based on contemporary art ideas and processes. As an interdisciplinary artist, my skills include (and are not limited to): 2D & Drawing, Printmaking, Installation, 3D/Sculpture, Crafts, Textiles, Book-Making, Photography, Moving Image & Creative Development. Able to work to brief or to design exciting and creative projects, I also offer workshops in traditional Chinese artforms. Whether you require a contemporary workshop or a traditional skills-based workshop, each workshop is designed to enhanced the skills, creativity and experience of each participant. I can deliver one-off sessions or longer term projects. I specialise in tailoring workshops to suit individual requirements. e.g. curriculum-based or family friendly. I am versatile and innovative so if you would like a visiting artist for your school/college, please contact me to discuss your needs. See Bio for my artist profile.

"The important thing is not so much that every child should be taught, as that every child should be given the wish to learn." - John Lubbock (1834-1913)

Having trained up to Masters level in Contemporary Fine Art, I have also undergone relevant arts education training in Curriculum Awareness, Safeguarding in the Arts, Diversity in the Arts, Disability Awareness and practical workshop leading skills.

I have substantial experience in delivering art workshops for schools and colleges. I have worked with a variety of age-groups including: Foundation, KS1, KS2, KS3, KS4, GSCE, BTEC, A-Level and Gifted & Talented pupils.

At university level, I have experience in providing 1-to-1 tutorials for undergraduates at University of Cumbria, Carlisle, which aim to encourage critical dialogue about contemporary fine art issues. I have also given a few artist talks about my practice, detailing themes, ideas and processes involved.. I have delivered a well-attended fine art seminar, entitled, "Taking Centre Stage" as part of my MA studies, which looked at artists who explore themes of 'art and life'. This also involved a very stimulating debate about these issues.

Arts AwardPui Lee is also an Arts Award Adviser Training (Discover/Explore/Bronze/Silver Level). Arts Award is a fantastic scheme for children and young people today and it provides them with the opportunity to work towards an accredited award, which sits on the national qualification framework. Therefore I can also help participating schools fulfil ArtsMark application criteria. See for more info.
