Since 2001 I have been teaching art classes in Sussex to students from beginner to post-graduate level. Generally I focus on adult education and I have an established timetable of 6 classes a week. I have developed a successful format which includes making introductory remarks and challenging students to start thinking about their experiences of the theme. This is followed by a practical demonstration making plenty of time for one-to-one contact.
The range of topics is broad, working across media, styles and subjects, both traditional and contemporary. I find a way to reach each student, respecting the development of individual styles artistic ambitions. I believe an important part of teaching is to provide an entertaining narrative whilst sharing a variety of techniques. I also provide one-to-one tuition and special events.
I run an accessible timetable of five week blocks at different venues around Sussex.
Multi-media art classes: £50 for 5 weeks
Life classes: £60 for 5 weeks including model fee (some individual weeks at £12 subject to availability)
