Professional artist offering bespoke lessons and workshops in fine art, drawing, print & photography for adults, and art, computing, animation, coding and forest school to children: key stages 1 - 3.

Methodology

My approach to teaching is to bring the best out of the people I teach. I work with students to identify their interests and to help them hone their skills and knowledge, and nurture their enthusiasm for art. As I have a broad skill set I can create a bespoke programme for individual children or adults, home schoolers or groups to support an existing learning programme, to develop a portfolio for college or for personal development and enjoyment.

I have a good size art studio with photographic darkroom facilities so would prefer to work in this space, however, I am prepared to travel to other suitable venues by negotiation.

Background

I have a broad approach to teaching though my specialism is in teaching fine art drawing, printmaking and photography. Since teaching in schools I have taught computing, coding, digital graphics, traditional darkroom and digital photography and animation. I can also offer an introduction to video editing. I have been teaching adults since 1995 and children since 2005 at Key Stages 1- 3 in small and larger groups.

In 2016 I completed the Level 3 Forest School training and First Aid training for Forest School. I also have public liability insurance. I have been developing my skills in willow and hazel weaving and can run introductory courses in this.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £25/h

Details

I can travel but the rate would be set at £30. Cancellations with no notice or under 24 hours will be charged full rate.

Joanna

I've known Katayoun as a friend for over a decade. She is a person of huge integrity, who can no doubt communicate both her technical expertise and her passion for the work at hand.

Kathy

I have known Katayoun Dowlatshahi for many years and am intimately familiar with her work. I am a professional commercial photographer myself and have learned so much from Katayoun. I've seen her patiently research and work on images for her projects and also admired her approach to educating others. She has a very unique eye and perspective, she notices the overlooked and unusual and has an appreciation for finding beauty in the ordinary. She's patient and takes her time explaining her thought processes and her teaching methods. Katayoun has a wonderful, calm and gentle way of not only verbally explaining what she wants to convey, but also a knack for showing everything first hand. I highly recommend her as an instructor, mentor and/or coach.
