Artist with 20 years experience gives drawing, painting lessons all abilities, ages and academic levels in London and Surrey

Methodology

Hello, I am an Art teacher with over 20 years of experience that covers a broad field from very basic drawing and painting to degree/MA level. I can cover Drawing, Painting, Sculpture,Collage, Print and all forms of Art history.
If an academic programme like GCSE or A'level or BTEC or Degree I work to the National curriculum, but making it fun. If for simply pleasure I build lessons around the individual and what they desire to learn, based on their own personalities, lifestyles and interests
I hope you will love my lessons.

Experience

I have taught many students individually ranging in ages and abilities. I have taught in an International school for 3 years teaching Art and Sociology and Art History. In that school I taught both small groups and 1 to 1 A'level and GCSE Art. They all achieved high passes. I also ran Arts and Crafts workshops
I have taught beginner drawing to elderly students and ones with special educational needs. I have been a private tutor to BA Hons Art students to help with their course work, portfolio building for UCAS applications and dissertations. I can teach any level and any age, nationality or ability. I celebrate diversity.
