Teaching art to the next generations
I am open to tutoring by the hour at £50 per hour, for groups.
Currently, I have one afternoon (Thursday) per week with Caterham Art Group but am happy to take private pupils studying classic drawing and painting skills.
I make a point of not encouraging a style but developing an individual's talent by teaching how to “see” in line, tone, negative and positive shapes, for “figurative art”.
I am not currently in education so my knowledge of A level and O level curricula is sketchy, but the basis of all figurative and even abstract art is as I have described.
Students are understandably hurt by criticism but I try to temper negative comments with positive ones.
As my old tutor Ken Bates used to say,
“The quicker you make your first 1,000 mistakes, the quicker you will learn”
