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 group workshops or one-to-one classes for students of all ages and abilities. I teach in my studio or at the student’s home if requested. I also teach day workshops at The White Room Creative space in Crediton, Devon.
Subjects include making colour mixing easy, 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!
