My style is person-centred and dependant on the goals and outcomes and choice of subject. I focus on what works best for the individual and their goals and situation.
I value the importance of both traditional techniques and personal intuition and will cover fundamental drawing and painting skills. We can learn about both conceptional contemporary with traditional art history. Using workshop-style exercises that will cover a variety of movements and styles.
We will work together to develop and understanding and knowledge of what art is! We will discover and find inspiration from different artists both contemporary and traditional and you will be encouraged to develop your own style and work and learn to trust your abilities.
