Fine Artist offering tuition in many areas of art based in Liverpool UK

Methodology

My approach to teaching is to cover all bases as people learn in different ways, each class is based on the needs of the group or individual. I like to provide reference material and encourage broad research to diversify inspiration, this will impact the work produced. I am able to support students at GCSE, A-LEVEL and Degree.
