Drawing | Painting | Art Theory
As well as being a practicing artist and illustrator I am an art teacher. I have worked in Universities, Ateliers and in one-to-one programmes.
I am currently based in London and teach several months of the year at Huanghuai University in China. Previously I taught at London Fine Art Studios and have experience at the Salford Artists Workshop and Otis College of Art and Design. I also worked as an artist on Nintendo's Art Academy franchise and was responsible for syllabus, teaching demonstrations, illustrations and artistic accuracy.
I teach through demonstration and hands on work so that students can see and understand my process in relations to theirs. I use group and individual critiques to create an atmosphere of critical analysis and self reflection.
My subjects taught include:
- Foundations of drawing
- Life drawing
- Oil Painting
- Still life painting
- Figure painting
- Art theory
- Professional practice for artists
My teaching focuses on methodology and theory while demonstrating technique and material handling, but never enforces style.
You can find a sample lesson of mine here.
I run classes on site and online, for more information please contact me.
