Drawing Lessons for Secondary Students to Adults/All Levels of Art Student, Taught by Professional Artist At The Victoria & Albert Museum or In Your Home

Methodology

I teach specifically secondary students up to adults and all levels of students and have had great success in the past helping all my students reach their goals in just a few weeks time.
I primarily teach young adults in portfolio preparation and can help them refine their skills in all areas or prepare for an exam or portfolio review to university or into a job.

I expect all my students to practice at least 30 minutes daily or it's not worth my time or theirs. Art takes practice and will always boost confidence the more effort a student puts into it following lessons.

I have experience teaching students with dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD and those recovering from serious illnesses or accidents. I, however, am not an art therapist and can only teach with an open mind. I'm not equipped to guide students through emotional traumas.

This website stipulates that the first lesson is free which I comply with for one hour only of my time. Beyond that free lesson, all following lessons are confirmed only after payment is made following your booking request. I have to be paid for my time, on the day of the lesson or before. No exceptions.

I suggest at least a two hour lesson. The first hour used for observational work and the second used for understanding perspective/proportion studies/rendering an image. I teach to a very high standard and will guide students according to their individual needs.

Please make it very clear to me in the beginning if you have a set goal in mind for these lessons and please share any previous work with me before we begin lessons so I can understand visually how to help you.

Background

I'm a professional, practising artist with over 20 years experience in the industry. I've taught all ages and levels in a classroom and privately. I've taught in schools as well as one to one, in my own home as well as the art gallery, school and my students homes. All of my previous students have achieved their goals and far exceeded even my expectations! Most are still in touch and still making wonderful progress on their creative journeys which I'm glad to have been a part of in the beginning!

Rates

Transportation Fee : £6

Details

I'm not a new teacher. I'm a professional artist with over twenty years teaching experience so my rates relate to my abilities.

All of my previous students have achieved and gone above and beyond their goals. I have very high standards for myself as a teacher as well as for my students.

Francesca is an experienced teacher, with years of work under her belt in the US. She has also privately tutored in the UK with positive results. A talented artist, Franceska would be an excellent tutor with a great understanding of the core skills that underpin drawing and painting, conveying this knowledge in an understandable and enjoyable way.

A Michelle

Franceska is the best art teacher I've ever had! She comes at everything with such a unique and fun perspective. I feel more creative just by being near her. It's true! She taught me new techniques that I had never tried before and now my drawing has improved greatly. She's also always on time and prepared. I wish I had met her sooner.

I have known Franceska McCullough since we attended Kansas City Art Institute together in 1995. I've also taken several of her classes, and occasionally acted as her assistant.
Franceska has a gift for teaching her students how to really see the world around them, and she gives them the tools to recreate it in their art. She has an excellent understanding of negative and positive space and the importance of observing both. She is a master of lighting and shadows, and will teach her students how the light reveals the shape and structure of what they are drawing or painting. She has grown up in an artistic family, and art history and it's influence is second nature to her. She has studied figure drawing and perspective drawing most of her life, and she has taught many students how to understand and translate complicated subject matter. She's a talented artist, but she's also an excellent teacher and a strong communicator when it comes to the arts. A student would be incredibly fortunate to learn from her.
