Tailored tutoring in art and design, specialising in illustration, animation and Design. Bristol and Bath area.

Methodology

Hi
As a creative I have worked across a diverse set of disciplines from illustration, animation and moving image. I currently hold two teaching posts at the Open University and at Bath Spa University.

My personal view is in that creativity is within reach of everyone. Through creative activities we can learn how to improve the world around us, to make a change. It is not just about aesthetics, it is also about learning how to make it work with and alongside the environment without harmful effect. Good design should be innovative, easily understood, and have honesty and durability.

Throughout my teaching career I have used numerous different techniques, but most common and effective is one to one support based around project based learning. One to one support can be done face to face or online.

Please note I do not offer free lessons, I will offer advice by email on how I can assist you in your request.
