Art Tutor/ Working Illustrator in Glasgow offering tailored art lessons, realism through to manga! 5 years experience, PVG Checked.

Methodology

Whether private or in groups, I give extensive individual attention and thoroughly demonstrate techniques. Realism and observation lay vital groundwork for any artist whether they want to focus on realism or a particular style, such as manga. As such, I do include realism and theory in my classes, or at least some reference to it, how much depending on the aims of the student. I also provide the opportunity to use professional grade materials which can be a great option for students who want to experiment with a medium before committing. I can offer the use of watercolour and gouache paint, ink, coloured pencil, graphite materials, as well as a graphics tablet and appropriate software.

Experience

Hello! I'm an artist and have been working freelance for individuals and professionals for the past 5 years. In particular I specialize in animal and fantasy artwork but I've tackled a huge range of subjects from realistic human portraits to manga. During this time I've taught numerous art classes, individual students and run workshops and art parties for children, teenagers and adults with very positive feedback. Under my instruction I've had students blossom from complete beginner to achieving confidence in their own styles, including high levels of realism where this has been the goal.

While I have a background in art from my foundation art degree and numerous years of regular life drawing classes and professional experience, my bachelors and masters degrees were in science giving me a particular edge for scientific illustration and detail that's been invaluable in improving my technical skill. I've also worked in an art shop which has given me a wealth of knowledge and experience with various mediums and art products and skill in how to recommend them to people of all abilities.

Shirin's CV

Work Experience
2014-Present. Freelance Artist. I do various artworks on commission and have worked for both private individuals and organizations. I work in a range of media, primarily graphite, colour pencil and digitally but I also have competence with watercolours and ink. I particually focus on pet portraiture, wildlife art, fantasy art and character illustrations but have drawn a range of other subjects as well. Additionally, I use on demand printing services to sell my own designs. Doing commissions requires high levels of organization, reliability and good communication skills. As a paid artist I’m confident in my ability to teach the subject.

2015-present. Art teacher/tutor. I organized, planned and ran an art class for a year at Boville Wright’s in Maidenhead with extensive positive response. I’ve also been hired to do art workshops and art themed parties, usually revolving around manga illustration, including an event at my local arts centre, Norden Farm. I’ve also volunteered my expertise for a couple of art workshops at Maidenhead Community Centre and Furze Platt Senior School. I’ve taught children, teenagers and adults. I've been doing personal one to one tuition to the present day.

2015-2016. Retail Assistant at Boville Wright Art Shop. I gained a wealth of information regarding art materials and in regularly advising customers of all abilities and specializations I’ve become well versed at helping my students select appropriate products for their skill level and interest. This environment also helped to further hone my communication skills generally.

2014-2015. Into University volunteer. I worked with teenagers from underprivileged backgrounds. I mentored with the charity weekly and ran and designed an art/biology crossover activity at the university. My mentoring activities were usually art related but I also aided with science homework.

2013. Artistic Research Assistant. A cross over biology and art position. I collaborated between several departments at Bristol University and with Artist Tomas Saraceno to test the feasibility on creating biological based art pieces. I had to mediate between different groups of people and work with very limited instruction.

Other Work Experience
2015-Present. Biology tutor. I tutor both in person and online. I’ve taught numerous students and am well versed in independent lesson planning and adapting to individual needs. I have tutored for A level, foundation degree level and for adult learners.

2017. Volunteer at Gotlands Katthem (Cat home). I volunteered both working with cats at the shelter and in the charity shop that funded it.

2012-2015. During my degree I excelled in areas regarding communication. I took a field course in public engagement and ran numerous activities including a tour in Bristol botanic garden, a fossil hunting trip and presentations at Bristol’s Festival of Nature in 2014. Additionally, I did my dissertation in public engagement where I communicated with the public and ran activities and have done public presentations relating to sustainability in both my degrees and by invitation at the University of Surrey.

2013-2014. Online English teacher. I independently planned all lessons I did and designed all my own teaching materials.

2010-2011. During my A levels I worked with the school’s reading scheme. I was promoted to Co-head of the scheme and looked after a class every morning for 4 days a week. It was my job to motivate, keep control of the class and work with individuals to improve their reading skill.

Interests and Hobbies
I love writing and have been working on a novel for the past year with intention to publish. I additionally try to find time to draw for pleasure, in the past I’ve attended life drawing classes for 3 years and practice regularly to keep my skills sharp. I also enjoy karate.
