Taster sessions, Group and 1-2-1 tutoring in Perspective Drawing, Portraits/Character Drawing, 3D/Anamorphic Drawing

Methodology

The lessons offered are varied. From Fine line portrait drawing to 3D anamorphic designs. The taster sessions allow you to try out and explore which practice of drawing you would like to develop. They will take you through one , two and three point perspective drawing and how this can be used to develop portrait/character and 3D/anamorphic styles of working. 1-2-1 tutoring basis to advance your techniques and skills in your preferred area enables the tutor to focus directly on your requirements. These sessions are ideal for beginners to any of these forms and techniques or experienced artists wanting to explore a different medium to their current practice.

Background

I have been a practicing artist for many years and gained a BA (Hons) FIRST Class in Visual Arts. I have cultivated my teaching skills over the past 14 years. Teaching in many creative areas including Animation and Film, Drawing and Graffiti, Arts and Crafts. I have found working with different mediums has enabled me to explore textures and style that has strengthened my understanding of value and form when applying it to teaching methods and my own illustrations. I thoroughly enjoy teaching in my favourite subject and I use teaching methods in drawing as accessible as possible for each learner.

Cheryl has worked for me at a local secondary school teaching drawing to Year 8 children. She is a friendly, creative and professional educator. Her drawing lessons have also had a positive influence on the pupils' 3D sculptures. Cheryl is well- prepared, punctual and highly skilled. I would recommend her highly.

Caroline

Cheryl has a plethora of experience in workshop delivery, and she has completed a degree in Visual Art and Culture. Her sessions are a worthy investment for those who want to learn drawing techniques, and the experience would be tailored to the learner's experience level.
Cheryl is also very hospitable and approachable so it will be a fun and friendly session as well as a way to develop your drawing skills. Comes highly recommended.
