Learn how to draw!! From comics to classical anatomy, abstract painting to art theory, I can show you how!

Methodology

Have you always wanted to learn how to sketch or draw? Tired of the same old life classes and lessons in three point perspective??? Learning how to draw or paint can be fun! Discover classical anatomy through the masters of comic books, the mysteries of abstract painting through 19th century poetry, create the most intelligent and original portfolio for your application to any of London’s leading art colleges!

I have been a professional artist for the last 20 years, with paintings in museums and significant private collections around the world. A graduate of Goldsmiths College, I am passionate about teaching art in ways that make the subject and it’s history come to life for my students - you will not be bored for a second, I promise!

Experience

I have 10 years of private tutoring experience with adults and young adults and 7 years of experience with children (ages 4-10). I am determined to make my classes fun, interesting and relevant to my students no matter their age or goals!

Drawing is a fundamental language used by everyone from engineers to fashion designers and can prove invaluable in any creative industry.

Add it to your skill set in the most exciting and fun way!

Perfect! David is an excellent drawing teacher. He is clear when explaining techniques and he listens well. He has helped me in drawing furniture designs and also book illustrations. He prepares for the lessons and invests thought into how to structure his sessions. I would recommend David to anyone.

Perfect! I would highly recommend taking art lessons with David ! I was very pleased with my one to one lessons, which helped me gain confidence and improve on my skills as an artist. David has a wonderful positive and encouraging teaching style. Thank you David for all your support and knowledge in helping me on my journey ! I look forward to more lessons soon.

Excellent! David has been teaching my 9-year-old for the past seven months. It has been incredible to see the progress in the techniques he uses, there is clear structure to the lessons and the most important thing for me is that my son really looks forward to these classes, thoroughly enjoys them and looks forward to completing any tasks assigned for the week. David is gentle but clear in the expectations set for the lessons and my son responds really well to this pace. I am now starting lessons for my 5-year-old because I trust that David can provide a good learning environment for him, David is experienced and this comes across in his ability to convey complex technique to children. I would happily recommend him.

David has been our daughter's drawing teacher for 10 months now. He came highly recommended and we were not disappointed.

David is brilliant. He has a very calming presence and is very good at engaging with children. We were pleasantly surprised at how David manages to contain our daughter's excited enthusiasm (as he politely put it...) and to keep her focused for 1 hour. The classes themselves are excellent: children learn to carefully observe, to recognise shapes and patterns, and to describe them. This enables children to draw in a way that otherwise would not be possible, and, has allowed David to successfully and effectively run Zoom classes during lockdown.

In short, I would warmly recommend David to any parent!

It's been a true delight having David as my tutor for the last few months. His passion and experience on drawing is valuable in helping me find my own style and explore new possibilities, while at the same time we're sticking to technique and covering all the basics of drawing. I always look forward our next class and I couldn't recommending him more for anyone who is interested in exploring this world.

I have been working with David for over 6 months with the goal of improving my illustration skills. It's fair to say that I have improved dramatically in this time and most of that is down to his excellent teaching and mentorship. He has been able to adapt his lessons to suit my goals and interests. He has devised tailored exercises to help me progress in the specific areas I need to. David is both affable and professional and has a wealth of experience and knowledge of the many facets of art training. I intend to continue to work with David as I grow as an artist.

Private tuition may be expensive but I consider it to be more than worth the cost no matter what you are trying to learn. There's only so much you can gain by watching online videos. To improve it is essential to get real feedback and help from someone with more experience who really cares about helping you. For drawing and painting lessons David is your man!

David has provided a perfectly tailored and intuitive experience! In understanding the initial level I was at with my drawing, he was able to direct my development based on my interest in science fiction and character design.

V
Valia

David is a dedicated art tutor, with a very creative approach. Calm, resourceful and fun as a person, he made every lesson interesting and challenging, which is a very important factor for me. He also is very happy to adjust his lesson plans according to my questions and difficulties, so I always feel that I get a completely tailor made lesson! I couldn't recommend more David as an art tutor!
