Bob Claytor is an artist, designer and teacher at a large secondary school in the north of England.
2003 to present: Teacher of Art, Design and Technology.
2001 to 2003: teacher training at Sheffield Hallam University. PGCE.
1985 to 2001: self employed artist and designer. Completed many large scale public art works, installations and series of painting and drawing.
During this period I developed my digital skills, becoming fascinated by the potential of software such as Photoshop and CoralDRAW. This activity and subsequent graphics and web design work has informed a creative transition from fine art through to a career that involves teaching product design and making stained glass as well as some of the wider aspects of the art and technology subject area.
1989 to 1991: M.A. Art and Design at Sheffield Hallam University.
1980 to 1985: B.A. (Hons) Fine Art Painting: Central Saint Martins School of Art, London.
