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.

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.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.
