GCSE, A-level art and art school applications guidance

I offer help in GCSE, A-level, and applications for Art Foundation and BA Fine Art courses. Having been through it all myself, I base my teaching on my own experience of art education, and am passionate in spreading what I have learnt from it with a friendly and patient approach.

Preparation for art school application (Art Foundation and BA Fine Art courses):
- specific knowledge and experience of various art & design courses and universities in the UK
- tailored advice on choosing the best course for the particular student
- portfolio preparation (content selection, format, and presentation)
- interview preparation (eg. gaining confidence in talking about your work - a critical and high-value skill for the course and general life)
- personal statement advice (art school statements vary greatly to the usual UCAS one that you may have been talked through in sixth form)

GCSE & A-Level lessons:
- sketchbook development, from inspiration to evaluation
- guidance for writing critically about your research and work using technical terms
- presenting your project cohesively
- help with the personal study (essay) element in A-level

I can also help develop your practical art skills. I have experience in:
- painting (oil, acrylic) and drawing (charcoal, graphite)
- printmaking (monoprinting, lino, screen printing, etching)
- portraiture
- life drawing
- Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Lightroom
- sculpture and installation (plaster casting, assemblage, metalwork, woodwork, ceramics)
- collage and mixed media
- bookbinding
- filmmaking
- digital and film photography


Every student's style and interests in art are so varied (which is what makes art so wonderful!) and so initially I will get to know the student and their work, to tailor my lessons to their specific requirements.

About Me

Hi, I’m Annie, a Fine Art student at the Slade School of Fine Art (UCL). I recently graduated from Central Saint Martins with Distinction in my Art Foundation. I achieved top grades in my GCSEs and A-levels, with A*s in both for Art.

I love art and cannot imagine doing anything else! I am motivated and reliable, having skilfully managed my time when combining study with art competitions and exhibitions. Recent successes include a commission with Barbican and Calvin Klein, being a semi-finalist on Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year, a finalist in the Holly Bush Emerging Woman Painter Prize 2019, and a finalist in ARTiculation (a national public-speaking competition about art).

Education

BA Fine Art - Slade School of Fine Art (University College London)
Foundation Diploma in Art and Design (distinction) - Central Saint Martins (University of the Arts London)
A-level and GCSE Art (A*)

Experience / Qualifications

I was offered places at all the BA courses I applied to, and for Art Foundation - where I was accepted into all six courses, each with individual personal statements, portfolios, and interviews! I have also attended short courses at universities such as Chelsea, Arts University Bournemouth, and Royal Drawing School. Therefore, I definitely have extensive and in-depth knowledge of what art schools want.

I ran school's art club for two years, and loved inspiring my younger peers and help them become more confident in their creativity and ideas. I have also helped individuals improve their art projects and technical skills. It was amazing to see the change both in their work and attitude towards art.
My goal is to share my passion for art and show just how varied it can be. I offer fun, practical art classes for anyone who wishes to learn and develop skills, techniques, and creativity. I have experience in: - painting (oil, acrylic) and drawing (charcoal, graphite) - printmaking (monoprinting, lino, screen printing, etching) - portraiture - observational drawing and life drawing - Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Premiere Pro, Lightroom - sculpture and installation (plaster casting, assemblage, metalwork, woodwork, ceramics) - collage and mixed media - bookbinding - filmmaking - digital and film photography Every student's style and interests in art are so varied (which is what makes art so wonderful!) and so initially I will get to know the student and their interests, to tailor my lessons to their specific requirements. I am experienced in helping people of all ages so I know how to plan a fun and educational lessons no matter how old or young! For example, we could work towards developing an art portfolio for applications, or just explore the diverse world of art with techniques from plastic bag printmaking to making handmade books to creating realist portrait paintings!

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.
