This essay details the learning gained by a visual artist who took part in the Preferred Learning Styles and Creativity programme in 2003-5.

Within the learning styles framework, artist Helen Marshall adapted her own approaches to working with school children to be able to identify, understand and utilise different creative routes into learning for different learning needs.

In addition to the artist's own professional development during the programme, the essay explores the different ways in which film can support the learning experience for pupils with a kinaesthetic learning preference.
