When I tell people that I teach painting and drawing the most commonly heard statement is ‘oh I can’t draw…! It would be wasted on me!’ However I think if you can write then you can draw. It’s not always about reproducing a photographic likeness, it’s about your interpretation and I think it’s my job to help my students to find their way of interpreting what they see or feel and learn how to discard any concerns about what other people may or may not think about it.
I teach groups or individuals from the age of 5 to 95 with a range of abilities from absolute beginner to those with skills and experience but need focused time and space to nurture their talent. I teach in my studio or at the student’s home if requested. Materials can be supplied but I encourage students to build a small arsenal of materials.
Subjects include simple colour mixing, basic mark making, composition, perspective and still life as well as personal projects. If you think I might be able to help you, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. It would be great to work with you!
