Are you looking for someone to help bring out your creative talents, and teach the essentials of drawing and painting? I am a graduate of Northumbria University in England where I studied fine art, specializing in drawing and painting. I also have a post-graduate diploma in art therapy from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh.
I have many years of experience in teaching art, and have worked with a variety of groups. Here in LA I have been teaching art to students of all ages, from 4 - 64! I have taught with the Childrens Art Studio and with Paintlab in Santa Monica, and with SPACE arts centre in South Pasadena.
Individual classes really give you the chance to learn what you want - everyone is different. My teaching methods are practical and encouraging - plenty of exercises to give you structure, but also room to discover and explore your own creative style. Each lesson will incorporate some art history - looking at artists work, past and present, will inform your own work.
We will work with a wide range of materials from pencils, pastel, charcoal, to acrylic and oil paint.
Lessons can be at your house, or in my garden studio in Silverlake.
I am also a TEFL-qualified teacher of English language. I can help you to bring your writing up to scratch. Maybe you need help with spelling, punctuation or grammar. Or maybe you want your writing to be more fluent or eloquent.
I am a patient, supportive teacher and have experience in working with students of all ages and of many different backgrounds and nationalities.
