Art Teacher

Mr Glen Johnston studied Fine Art at Plymouth College of Art, UK and later went on to complete his PGCE in post-compulsory education. He started his professional teaching career as Lecturer working with BA and FE students, where he recalls - “the rich and vibrant interdisciplinary environment had a long lasting positive impact”.

I am from Southwest of the United Kingdom and has a love for the sea and countryside. I moved to Malaysia in 2019 with my family after working in Vietnam for 3 years.I studied Fine Art at Plymouth College of Art, UK and later went on to complete my PGCE in post-compulsory education. I started my professional teaching career as Lecturer working with BA and FE students, where I recalls - “the rich and vibrant interdisciplinary environment had a long lasting positive impact”. The lures of travel to explore the tropical wonders of South East Asia initially drew me to the international sector. However, I felt that a passion for working in an international context, and the joys of how it provides an insightful perspective into different cultures and society, is only possible when you give yourself to that place and decide to live there. In BSKL, I have found a home in the warm welcoming community feel.

My journey to teaching was not a conventional linear path, my earlier years were dedicated to my own art practice and a commitment to working in collaboration with other practitioners to make long lasting change to the creative milieu of the city by investing energy in my local community. Co-founder of KARST, one of the largest independent NPO art spaces in the southwest of the UK. In this role, I was able to develop the foundations for engagement between the creative industry and the local community through facilitating schools and colleges with off-site learning and tailoring curatorial practice modules and critiques with the local BFA and MFA courses.

It is always fascinating how different places provide new challenges and I continue to work hard and engage as a creative practitioner. I aim for this same enthusiasm to come across in my teaching.
