Art lessons are student centred and tailored to suit student interests and ability. Lessons are designed to be inspiring, challenging and engaging. I have taught KS2- A level across a range of abilities including SEN, gifted and talented, as well as A star student GCSE and A level students. Individual or group projects can involve a combination of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture. Students may provide specialist resources and ideas.

Perfect! We really enjoyed our two lessons with Sarah. She was helpful without being intrusive and gave both my son and I encouragement to start painting and get creative! Would use her again.
Tami and Cyrus are both enthusiastic and creative art students. Cyrus developed and improved his acrylic painting technique using a range of tones and blending. Tami developed and improved her watercolour techniques. It was a pleasure to tutor them.
I highly recommend Sarah. She is an extremely talented artist who excels in all forms of art. She has given drawing lessons to my 2 daughters (6 & 10 years old), as well as beading jewellery making, watercolour lessons and also drawing and painting lessons with my grandmother (aged 90+). She is very versatile and flexible.
Sarah Best has taught me everything I need to know about art in order to successfully achieve an A* at A-Level. After learning many creative skills from Sarah I went on to study architecture, and have now worked for one of the leading architectural practices in the country. I wouldn't have been able to do it without Sarah, so I'm very thankful for her amazing art lessons and would highly recomend her.
Sarah was the most amazing, encouraging art teacher I’ve ever had and changed my life by believing in my ideas and difference in thought. She also set me up for life with numerous techniques.
