Painting/drawing for beginners to advanced learners, available for all abilities and ages! — Also experienced with autistic/ADHD, students

Teaching for me is about personal connection and facilitating a safe environment with your students and interacting with them on their level rather than simply infusing knowledge.
The idea of teaching someone something to copy from influence is one thing, however to teach the learner to be comfortable to explore themselves artistically and at the same time have self discipline takes patience and understanding the individual.
Personally I think a learner should be taught from the ground upwards and to slowly neglect bad habits from the past, this relating to technical stumbling blocks or the inability to think outside of the box artistically. I believe students with more insight into their own ability can then become truly versatile and more importantly 'satisfied' with their work and practice.

I teach a range of techniques in my art lessons such as palette knife, paint brush techniques and technical sketching methods. I also instruct with a diverse variety of mediums such as pastel, charcoal, pencil, acrylic and oil paint as well as mixed media.
With my background in hyper-realism portraiture, the subject matter I specialise in is realist portraiture, also with considerable experience in landscape and still life tutoring. I do encourage my students to venture into abstraction and mixed media aswell, which I feel can loosen up students to learn to relax and have fun also while making artwork.

Whether studying for GCSEs, A Levels, University or just your own enjoyment, I teach at a level best suited for the learner and the goals in which they pursue. I would obviously encourage students studying for grades to follow certain assessment checkpoints which would be revolved around contextual and method referencing, self reflection, experimentation and consolidation. This will vary for different learners at different stages and obviously with different interests. I do stress though at the heart of my teaching is technical skills and learning to explore personal artistic growth. These are skills which are easily transferable to whatever stage you’re at with your art practice.

Extra information

For any lessons I’d suggest have with you the basics such as pencils, sketch books, rubber etc also with paints I’d suggest system 3 acrylic with acrylic sketch pads to work on. If you’re experienced or would like to learn oil painting, I’d also suggest getting some cheap canvas pads to experiment on initially.

Have source material/image references you’re studying on hand for the start of the lesson.

About Me

My name is Andrew and I'm a fine artist based in Fleet, Hampshire.
I have been painting for over 15 years professionally, specialising in oil painting, working in a realist and abstract expressive style. My painting practice derives from a hyper-realistic background, a style which I studied and explored during and after my university education in 2008, where I graduated with a 1st class (Hons) degree in Fine Art.

My main passions are within the visual arts and teaching drawing and painting. I am also interested in teaching people with learning difficulties and exploring art in a therapeutic way to help people in with diverse abilities and needs.

I have been teaching privately for over 10 years, conducting one to one sessions and small workshops to students with a varying abilities, skills and mixed age ranges.
I specialise in teaching different styles of painting, for example impasto expressionism to fine technical realism, mostly concentrating on acrylic and oil based paints.
The subject matter I teach is usually portraits and landscape, although I encourage my students to explore all facets of visual arts including mixed media and abstract painting which I also have experience in my own artistic practice.
Besides painting I tutor drawing techniques with pencils, charcoal, chalk and oil pastel as well

Currently I teach at `Disability Initiative` a charity in Camberley where I am an observational and technical art instructor to people with both mental and physical disabilities. At the charity I support clients to fulfil their artist potential to create personal and group artworks throughout the course of a 12 week rolling programme.
I've also taught for over 8 years at Arthouse Unlimited and The Meath Epilepsy Charity where I delivered similar workshop sessions to groups of people with learning difficulties and epilepsy. Their art works are sold to the public and exhibited in professional exhibitions and art fairs.

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

Autodesk 3DSMax, logiciel de création tridimensionnelle
3DSMax est l'outil le plus employé dans l''industrie du jeu et de la réalité virtuelle. Il sert à concevoir des images fixes ou animées en mettant en scène des objets 3D dans des univers tridimensionnels. Ceux-ci peuvent aussi être exportés pour des logiciels de réalité virtuelle comme Unity ou Unreal. De fait, tout peut être réalisé graphiquement avec un tel logiciel : Du simple objet manufacturé, en passant par le design, l'architecture, l'urbanisme, jusqu'à la création de personnages de dessin animés ou hyper-réalistes immergés dans des mondes imaginaires ou existants, du compositing vidéo jusqu'à la réalité mixte. C'est donc un outil complet qui comblera l'artiste comme l'amateur de technologie. Aussi de manière évolutive, vous apprendrez à maitriser son interface et produire de manière progressive des objets et des scènes 3D de plus en plus complexes et de plus en plus réalistes.

Design graphic, art director skills, and drawing-painting.
Dans mon cours de dessin, vous passerez d'abord par le dessin d'observation, c'est à dire l'art de voir avant de dessiner car sans observation pas de dessin, puis vous passerez à l'étape suivante de l’expression de soi, de votre propre point de vue par des projets personnels sur des thèmes imposés ou libres, à décider ensemble. J'ai une Licence d'Arts Appliqués à l’Académie Bugeant à Poitiers. (1983), 35 ans de direction artistique dans la communication et 40 ans de dessin non-stop. J'enseigne à l'ECV creative Shools à Nantes depuis 7 ans, chez Brassart depuis 5 ans, chez Efet du groupe Eductive, et chez ISG Luxury depuis 2 ans. Je donne des cours de "rough", une méthode de dessin, de design et de création publicitaire sur papier, avant le passage à l'ordinateur. (Du dessin pur et du dessin typographique ). J'ai une grande habitude de l'échange et du soutien personnalisé de chaque étudiant dans ces écoles. Je peux vous aider pour appréhender et créer via la suite Adobe (Photoshop, illustrator et indesign) que je pratique depuis 25 ans.

TECHNICAL DRAWING from scratch (or from wherever you need)
The TECHNICAL DRAWING takes you by surprise because: - You have to appear for the EBAU this year or next year and you don't see it clearly... - You are doing or plan to do a higher education cycle or a design degree and you do not distinguish between square and bevel... - Although you understand the YouTube tutorials or the solved exercises, when you are going to do them you don't know where to start... I can help you understand what resists you so that you have greater security and, why not, come to enjoy the subject.
