Art School welcomes two new Foundation Tutors

City & Guilds of London Art School is delighted to announce the appointment of two new members of teaching staff to the Foundation Department.

Joshua Uvieghara has been appointed as Foundation Coordinator/Tutor.

Joshua is a Brighton-based artist who works primarily in painting, as well as processes involving collage/assemblage, found objects, printmaking, sculpture and installation. Having graduated with a BA and MA in Fine Art from the University of Brighton, Joshua has had several academic appointments over the past 15 years as a studio-based lecturer in Fine and Visual Art. He has taught from Foundation to Post-Graduate level at the University of the Arts London, Kensington and Chelsea College, Rye Studio School, Hereford College of Arts and University of Brighton.

Commenting on his new appointment, Joshua said: “I’m so thrilled to be part of the team as Foundation Coordinator/Tutor within CGLAS. I find a striking feature of the Art School to be found in a unique focus on material form and the aesthetic-object, which reflects a wealth in the range of subject areas across the school. This resonates with my approach as an Artist/Teacher, particularly regarding what this might mean within current intellectual and cultural climates in shaping a practice. Having taught extensively on foundation courses over the years, I am looking forward to supporting students at such an exciting and formative time in realising their creative potential.”

Ana Vicente is joining the team as a Sessional Tutor.

Ana is a Portuguese-born artist, researcher and educator based in London. She works with multidisciplinary methods including moving-image, performance, photography, installation, drawing and book design. She has worked in creative education for the past fourteen years, primarily in Further Education as Senior Lecturer and Course Leader in Art & Design and Media. She is also a Senior External Moderator for the University of the Arts Awarding Body. Ana has studied MAs in Performance Making and Education Studies (Art & Learning) at Goldsmiths, University of London and is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of the Arts London.

Commenting on her new role, Ana said: “I am thrilled to be appointed Sessional Tutor on Foundation at City & Guilds of London Art School. I look forward to working with the students and the team, continuing my commitment to creating accessible opportunities for students of all diversity to engage, participate and develop their own subject knowledge and creative voice to progress in their creative journeys.”

The Art School welcomes Joshua and Ana to the team!
