About the lesson
My teaching method would always start with exploring ways of seeing. This may include some exercises to connect with the intuitive right brain, which will involve relaxing, practicing and having some fun with interpretation, line and mark making. Once the eye is "in", then I will teach how to understand and represent anatomy, line, space, perspective, volume, contrast, colour and expression through mark-making and a variety of media and techniques.

I am a professional and practicing fine artist with 25 years + teaching/coaching experience. I trained at Central St. Martin's in the 80's and have a 1st class degree in Fine Art (printmaking). I have made work and exhibited all my adult life.
I ran a private art studio in Johannesburg SA giving mixed media classes to children and adults, many of whom are now in creative industries or still enjoying art. I have run workshops for creative graduates into industry at UCL Farnham and been a professional practice tutor on the Fashion BA at Winchester School of Art.
I have wide coaching/training experience including personal development and body image work through my portraits ((concealed information) and am a first class communicator. Last year, I ran a drawing workshop at the famous Sketch restaurant in Mayfair as part of their year of culture celebrations. I am comfortable and enjoy teaching all ages.
Perfect! Skye has a great skill to bring our family group of 4 different abilities together and has already taught us all a great deal. We very much enjoy our family drawing sessions and are very glad we took it up. We do highly recommend Skye for her sensitive and creative approach to teaching and bringing a joyful experience to our home.
- Skye's response : Teaching Sophia's family is a rich experience as ages and levels of understanding and experience vary. I am made to feel welcome and relaxed in their home and so far, I think their efforts and results are really moving forward. It's early days and a process but step by step with fun is key in the family setting.
