TEACHING ASSISTANT

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

Hello! I am Lizi Pickup and am the current Artist in Residence at Sabden Primary School. I am a qualified teacher in Art and design but my career took a tangent after graduating, where I worked at CBBC on Art programming behind and in-front of camera. Since leaving the BBC and moving back to Lancashire, I have run my own childrens’ art and craft...

Hello, I am a Teaching Assistant at Sabden Primary School and have worked at this lovely school for over 17 years. I have recently qualified as a Forest School Practioner and looking forward to putting my skills to practice. Outside of school I have 3 horses which keeps me quite busy. One of my other interests is travelling to other countries to discover their cultures.
