MEET THE TEAM 

Dawn Beedell

I have enjoyed a successful career as a Teacher. My heart is in the classroom, supporting and enabling people to learn, succeed and gain confidence.


In 2010 I temporarily left teaching and gained rich rewards as I experienced new roles and life events I would not otherwise had thought possible, including starting ARTPAD in 2011. I am a great believer in positive thinking and of using art as a way to relax and unwind. I have developed into a professional artist with a unique style, gaining the confidence to exhibit and having work published. 


In my teaching at ARTPAD my aim is to create an inspiring and uplifting environment and to support you throughout the creative process.  That support could be; Acquiring new skills and/or developing skills in specific art forms or mediums; Raising confidence and self esteem through insight and kindness to oneself, which can overflow into other areas of your life; Providing time and space to relax and de-stress and simply enjoy art; Achieving your own personal goals.
