For both individual and group lessons, students will be provided with guidance and support through process and skill based activities whilst developing their own confidence through working independently.
My lesson content is both broad based and tailored to suit individual learners needs.
An understanding of artistic context through awareness of contemporary and historical artistic practices are discussed when outlining styles and techniques adopted during sessions.
Tutor led demonstrations are provided, with critical support offered as and when is necessary or requested.
Private/homework study is encourages to support and develop core skills introduced during sessions.

I worked with Mark this summer to provide a visual arts programme for children of NHS keyworkers. Mark is incredibly organised. The 2 and 3 dimensional activities he designed were smart, accessible and fun. His teaching manner is professional, friendly and down to earth, the children and staff really engaged with him.The children developed good creative and artistic skills.At times Mark had to respond to change and challenging circumstances, he adapted his delivery and workshop content well ensuring everyone had the same quality of experience. Id highly recommend this tutor for work with children and adults.
Mark is an extremely professional, charismatic and talented artist. His accomplished technical ability is matched with enthusiastic teaching skills. His friendly, natural, calm and engaging manner is ideal for supporting art students of any level. His systematic view and meticulous attention to detail help student to acquire solid background knowledge and built confidence rapidly. He is also very approachable and easy to communicate with, at all times. I could not recommend him more for anyone who wants a supportive, encouraging and effective drawing tutor.
Mark is a brilliant artist and art tutor. He is an enthusiastic teacher who shares techniques and processes clearly and patiently. He can adapt his teaching style to suit all ages and abilities. His passion for art is clear and he always has a method to share to bring ideas to life. Therefore, I would highly recommend Mark as a tutor.
