College student with experience in visual arts and theatre gives drawing and design lessons in London and Surrey

Methodology

I teach sketching, painting and other forms of creative visual art to all ages. My methods include developing one's creativity and style through improvisation and style-development exercises. I am very patient and have has experience working with young children. My tutoring method aims to make the student more independent in their creative abilities rather than rely on copying or pure technique.

Experience

I have been trained from a young age in the visual arts and have also received an international baccalaureate in higher level visual arts. I have set up numerous exhibitions in Iran and India.
I have experience in costume and set design for theatre and character sketched as well.
