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 18 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!

Background

I have 5 years of private tutoring experience with adults and young adults and 3 years of experience with children (ages 4-8). 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!

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 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.

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!
