Louise K Fraser
Louise K. Fraser has worked as a dyslexic neurodivergent teaching artist for the past 18 years, since graduating with MFA from Edinburgh College of Art. Her teaching and practice are based around making to think and understand, working with people to find the right way for them to engage with art.
Lou works across Scotland devising and delivering imaginative and original workshops as well as Career-long Professional Learning (CLPL) to teachers in person and online. She devises resources for galleries, institutions, and councils, drawing on her experience as a freelance arts educator and a secondary school Art and Design teacher.
Lou continues to develop her own art practice from her studio in Leith and through residencies. Finding solution for gaps in the artworld is something she pursues through personal projects such as Teach Art, a teacher residency program that runs in line with school holidays and ‘Bridging’ an ongoing project rethinking pedagogy and our interaction with it as freelancer teaching artists. Lou knows the importance for the work of art educators to be ‘Seen, Valued & Shared’ and organise yearly gatherings in Edinburgh for teaching artists to ‘Meet Up’.
