« Perfect! Lucia has helped me massively with my Art A Level Course, in particular, working through two sketchbooks which are weighted with a high percentage of the overall mark. What has helped me most is Lucia's extensive knowledge of the course, and by approaching my work with both positive reinforcement and constructive criticism. I have also found our one-on-one lessons to have greatly improved my understanding of such a demanding subject; achieved through Lucia's sharp attention to detail, which I have found to improve my creativity, confidence in my own work, and a more perceptive eye when seeing where I can do better as an art student. »

Qualified art teacher and art practitioner sharing my skills and experience in the Shropshire / Telford & Wrekin area.

Methodology

I enjoy pushing the boundaries by creating exciting new teaching approaches to the area. I enhance learner engagement and understanding by demonstrating a broad range of creative processes in a visual and practical way, making every effort to ensure my lessons are engaging and innovative. I believe learners should take risks with their work and push the boundaries to celebrate their mistakes as well as their achievements, whilst enhancing their critical thinking skills to generate a better understanding of their ideas, art theory and practice. I have a deep commitment to my own research which informs my teaching methodology this has made me an 'outstanding' teacher for my creative instruction observed by Ofsted.

Experience

My specialism is Fine Art mainly drawing and painting although I have worked across all disciplines in Art & Design. I have 6 years experience of teaching A-Level Fine Art & BTEC Level 2 & 3 Art & Design as head of course and Lead Internal Verifier. I have over 20 years experience of being a practising artist and community artist working with all age groups in both the public and private sector. I have a BA (Hons) in Fine Art and a PCGE with QTLS status.

Perfect! Lucia has helped me massively with my Art A Level Course, in particular, working through two sketchbooks which are weighted with a high percentage of the overall mark. What has helped me most is Lucia's extensive knowledge of the course, and by approaching my work with both positive reinforcement and constructive criticism. I have also found our one-on-one lessons to have greatly improved my understanding of such a demanding subject; achieved through Lucia's sharp attention to detail, which I have found to improve my creativity, confidence in my own work, and a more perceptive eye when seeing where I can do better as an art student.

Lucia's response

Jess is a friendly, bright & diligent student. Her sketchbook pages are beautifully presented and are of a good standard. However, it is my role as her tutor to provide Jess with advice & guidence that can help her meet the higher grading critria and increase her confidence and enjoyment to make the relevant changes. I believe following our sessions Jess' grade will increase.

Lucia was my art tutor at college, she was so encouraging and inspired me to continue my art studies at university and pursue an artistic career. A genuinely lovely person as well as a great teacher and artist!
