Lillian Mackey

Head of Art and Design

I am from Northern Ireland and studied a BA (Hons) in Design at Duncan of Jordanstone College, University of Dundee. I then completed my PGCE in John Moores University, Liverpool. I taught Art for 7 years in Liverpool and achieved my Advanced Skills Teacher Status before moving to Dubai and learning about the IB programme, which I have now taught for 4 years.

I led an Art department at an outstanding Dubai school, achieving top A*-B grades at GCSE and scoring above the world average at the IB. I look forward to continuing these high standards at NAS Dubai. Throughout my teaching I have organised many Art based trips around the world to enhance students’ creative thinking and vision, “An artist is not paid for his labour, but for his vision” (James Whistler)’.

I have a great passion and enthusiasm for teaching Art and I really look forward to joining the team at NAS Dubai in August.

Since moving to Dubai I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunities for travelling and have been working on my own Photography skills in many fascinating places both abroad and locally. I hope to begin a Masters in Art next year to further develop my own artistic talents.

During my free time I enjoy scuba diving, reading, cooking and planning my next adventure!
