Gary Price-Hunt is responsible for teaching the BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Art and Design at Tresham. He says that he enjoys, “managing and teaching this group as it is rewarding to see students who might not have a glittering array of GCSEs grades but have talent in this area flourish, grow in confidence and progress onto the next level, something that was out of their reach previously.”
Gary has teaching experience at secondary and tertiary (sixth form) level since 1990. Prior to that, Gary was involved, career-wise, with Social Services and the Probation Service working with Young Offenders in alternatives to custody schemes (as well as art qualifications, Gary has a law degree)! Gary says that his main areas of specialism are, “painting and printmaking”.
Gary has continued his own art practice since leaving art school and has previously exhibited in group and solo shows in the following medias: prints, paintings and mixed media. Presently, he is involved with a group of artists who have formed a link with an artists group in Tuscon, Arizona, USA. Both groups have exhibited in the UK together and now the show has transferred to the USA where it will tour in the state of Arizona. This is a continuing collaboration.
