Leigh Roberts

I trained as a visual artist and art teacher at the Tasmanian School of Art, graduating in 1968. I furthered my studies in 1976 by gaining a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Tas Uni.

From 1969 I taught Visual Art in Tasmanian primary, secondary, senior secondary schools and TAFE, retiring in 2004 to concentrate on my glass artwork.

I am a practising and exhibiting glass artist.

My career, especially teaching in Primary schools, has validated and reinforced my belief that a creative outlet and it’s implied freedom of expression are crucial in developing young minds and lead to and maintain healthy adult minds.
