Drawing expert (comics, animation, life drawing, graphic design) for drawing classes in Edinburgh

Methodology

The needs of the learners are the starting point of my classes. I discuss with my students the reasons they are learning to draw and on which projects they want to direct their skill. Based on this I will either focus part of the class on tutored life drawing, directing the student's attention on what exactly to pay attention to, or on how to develop more specific skills linked to the fields of design, animation or comics.

Experience

I am an experienced graphic designer who has worked for both big and small companies. I have studied drawing for more than ten years and explored different types of techniques and methods. I am interested in how, in order to learn to draw well, we first need to deconstruct the way we tend to see reality - i.e. in a schematic way. I've explored this topic also in my MSc dissertation. This knowledge will help me guide you in the fascinating yet mysterious steps we need to take to learn to draw "naturally". This is a first step that will allow you to build a strong skill that will be the baseline of all your future projects.

Perfect! My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Elena. She feels she is learning a lot and Elena has a great friendly and encouraging style which makes the lessons very enjoyable and rewarding.

Elena's response

It's a real pleasure to work with Amity. She is extremely talented, very precise and intelligent. I recommend a lot of exercises aimed at developing creativity and drawing lots of different things. It's easy at the stage she's in to find one's own style and stick to it, which is good, but being open to exploring can be extremely useful and rewarding in the long run.
