About us

The Art department consists of two experienced and dedicated staff that each have different specialisms and skills to provide a broad and balanced experience to all Lawnswood pupils.


Ms Smith (Curriculum Leader)

Hello! I am Ms Smith and I am the Curriculum Leader for Art and Design. I have been teaching for over 20 years and I have a specialism in Fine Art. I also completed a Masters Degree, also in Fine Art.

My favourite medium to work in is mixed media and I also love to use this in my own Art work that I produce at home in my spare time. I am interested in looking at old technologies and letting this inspire my artwork.  


Mrs Staniforth (Teacher of Art)

Hi! I am Mrs Staniforth and I am a Teacher of Art and Textiles. My specialism is Fashion Design which has given me an interest in illustration, graphic design and using Photoshop to manipulate images. I am also very passionate about using mixed media and love to manipulate and explore different materials and techniques, which I try to incorporate into my lessons. I also create my own art at home and love to paint large, bright abstract pieces. I am always eager to see what art work my pupils create at home too!
