Develop Drawing skills and Creative Writing: Poetry

Have you ever drawn with words - or write with drawing/ mark making?

In each session, we will look at techniques to develop both drawing and writing skills to produce an image/ prose to be proud of. The aim is to then use this creativity to address the demands of every day living - to find a moment of calm amidst the punishing to-do list we give ourselves.

Drawing and writing - why not combine the two?

Extra information

you will need a range of drawing pencils / drawing paper, a nice pen, scrap paper, maybe all purpose paper that can accommodate water colours, pastels - any medium you prefer to work in.

About Me

Working in education has taught me a lot about people. With an MA English Lit, I have over two decades of experience across compulsory, further and higher education. Whilst I specialise in GCSE English, Functional Skills, ESOL and improving literacy skills has sustained my teaching. Coaching NQTS or tutors through to QTS, QTLS; private tuition; TEFL - these are all strengths of my education services.

From my teaching experience came the ability to coach others. Everything we believe about ourselves is developed by the interactions with others. Our beliefs, assumptions and so aspirations are all limited by a negativity from these experiences. My L5 coaching qualification vindicates my experience of helping others make SMART decisions about their own lives. My passion to help others is an abiding driver: lifestyle changes such as coming out, changing jobs, dealing with difficult people - are but a few examples I've helped with.

Personally, a second MA in fine art underpins the voluntary work I enjoy. Keeping fees to a reasonable price ensures everyone can get the support, guidance and learning they need.

Experience / Qualifications

Widely travelled, gregarious, ongoing voluntary work; painting, drawing and sketching has turned into exhibitions, voluntary community work.
KS3/ GCSE As the lockdown eases, it's time to think about a return to study at school. Firmly established teacher of English since 1998; my specialism is raising the grade - especially tricky 3/4 boundaries. Another strength is accommodating learners with specific learning needs - G&T, ASD, MLD, PP, ADHD, and so forth. KS2 also accommodated. Tutoring young learners on a one to one basis is so rewarding: the learners not only gain merit certificates and recognition form their schools - but also blossom in confidence and knowledge. To complement the two decades +, other assets include experience as a GCSE examiner for OCR; a thorough understanding of AQA and WJEC AO papers. ESOL Developing your spoken/ listening, reading, and writing skills - especially as English for Academic Purposes unlocks your potential and wellbeing. Experience of teaching in universities and specializing in Functional Skills, tutoring is planned around your needs. Functional Skills Are you preparing for teaching? Do you want to go for a promotion at work? Do you want to improve your literacy skills? If you need to get a Level 2 in FS English - tutoring is available. Once described as an expert, teaching the essential skills in English was the core of my management career in FE. Whatever your needs - contact me to discuss how tutoring can help you change, shape, and free your future.
Through creativity comes inspiration and revelation. Combining creative writing/drawing and coaching, you will explore the steps and actions needed to reach your desired goals. Following the cycle - old habits and fears are addressed, replaced and repurposed: check-in: pre-session questions to prepare you session pathway: in-session activities to create action check out: review and evaluate the session, you into action: post-session tasks and activities

Discussion of a Book, a Short-Story, a Poem, or a Movie.
In this class, we analyse and evaluate works of narrative art together. This is how it works: Before each meeting we agree on a short-story or a poem to read (or listen to), or a movie to watch in preparation for the session. If it's a book, it has to be one which we've both read in the past. We can easily determine our mutual reads through apps like Goodreads or Library Thing. The aim of this course is to exercise your capacity for critical and evaluative thinking. By the end of this course, you should be able to produce (in speech or in writing) a coherent and methodical review of a book of fiction, poetry, or a film.

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.

Impeccable French: private classes tailored for you
Whether you'd like to sharpen your style, perfect your oral skills, prepare an exam or just start from scratch, I'd be glad to walk you through the jungle of the French language. My methods are based on listening, dialog and creativity: they adjust to match your needs, goals and interests may you be looking for help with academic French at school, conversational French, or writing tips (you name it!) You can count on lots of videos, podcasts, articles, songs, fiction and non fiction texts, photos, art pieces, social media posts, TV series, etc. as well as oral and written homemade exercises, tests, etc. to go on at your own pace with autonomy. I am there to make you feel comfortable and confident and help you reveal your linguistic and literary skills in a relaxed and playful atmosphere. Your questions, doubts and mistakes will be the engine of the classes. I studied Modern Literature and Creative Writing in Paris and I have tutored students of all ages and proficiency since 2017. I keep on learning as well with each and everyone of my students. Feel free to contact me! Thank you! Noémie

Carlos
Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.
