I am a professional tutor with extensive experience in secondary and further education. I am also a practising artist and sculptor (First class BA hons).
I guide the complete beginner, step by step, through a variety of basic techniques whilst more experienced artists are supported in the development of their own projects. I will encourage you to develop your own style and interests. We work from a variety of subjects including still life, the figure, portrait, animals and landscape. I regularly teach you new techniques and introduce you to the work of different artists and potters as a source of inspiration. Students have the opportunity to regularly exhibit their work.
It’s a great way for you to learn new skills and make new friends in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
Class numbers are kept low to maintain a high standard of tuition.
The course runs over three terms a year, the next one starts the week beginning 18 September until Friday 8 December, with a two week break from 21 October to the 5 November. You can join a class at any point in the year; if you are unable to come to a session you are welcome to swap sessions that week or come along to two sessions on another week to catch up.
