Penny Huntsman

Art History Teacher

Penny Huntsman has taught A-Level Art History alongside A-Level Sociology for over 14 years and currently teaches both subjects together with the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). She has also taught A-level Media Studies, A-level Critical Thinking and GCSE Philosophy and Ethics. With a BA (hons) in Art History and an MA in Cultural and Critical Theory, she takes a characteristically interdisciplinary approach to the teaching of art history.

She is currently writing a Ph.D. on education and social justice. She is passionate about providing art-history tasters in state schools and champions the subject’s wider inclusivity. Penny joined the schools’ committee of The Association of Art Historians, and wrote the first dedicated AS-level textbook: Thinking about Art. The textbook’s publication was the fruition of plans the Schools’ Group had hatched years earlier in a bid to make the subject accessible to all.
