« Perfect! Niu is a really excellent teacher, extremely patient and explains things clearly so that you understand them. For example, there are many aspects to Adobe Illustrator that may be intimidating at first, but Niu is able to focus on the key tools and concepts that will get you started and build your confidence in a short time. If you want to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator, or want to understand how colours and graphic designs work, look no further, Niu will guide you through. I thoroughly recommend Niu as a teacher. »

Multi-discipline Illustrator/Animator offering Hand-drawing/Digital illustration/Graphic Design/gif making courses in London

Methodology

I am an artist with patient and fun ideas to share my knowledge with children and adults. I like to help you cultivate confidence and passion for art and design, and help you think through making.

We will design the syllabus together based on your interests, needs and abilities, and developing it according to your progress. We can learn drawing skills like sketching, shadowing, coloring, and perspectives. We can also learn the methodology of developing projects and complete your artwork. I can also help you with portfolio preparation and software skills.

I will encourage you to play with ideas and have fun during the process, and enjoy the unexpected. We will create a friendly, mutual communication and helpful container to tackle the problems during your learning process, and finding the most suitable way for you to learn.

Experience

I am an illustrator and animator with a master's degree in Communication Design at Kingston University (2018) and a Graduate Diploma for fashion & textile in the Royal College of Arts (2019). I have the passion for art for my whole life and always do life drawings and travel journals to record my life experiences.

Besides hand-drawing skills, I also specialized in digitalizing skills to transfer the sketches and ideas to digital applications. I have the skill set of Adobe software like Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, After Effects and Premiere.

I helped my friends to make hand-drawing brushes in photoshop, and applying texture on images to create a natural atmosphere. I also taught my classmates to c create patterns and logos in illustrator. I had worked in an animation studio in 2016 and created motion graphics and gif images from After Effects and Photoshop.

My other skills including book layout, risograph printing, bookbinding, zine-making, mono printing, etching printing, and ceramic making.

I would love to share all my creative knowledge and passion with you, and I always get feedback says it’s helpful to discuss work with me. Let's stimulate and inspire each other!
