Art Lessons for
My Teaching Philosophy...
To support, inspire, motivate & gently challenge each student to achieve all they wish in their Art.
All this while working in a 'zero-pressure',
relaxed & fun environment...
because we learn best when we are enjoying what we do :-)
Discoveries Art Classes:
So everyone can get the most out of our Art Lessons, classes are 'sorted' into 2 'groups':
First Steps - for newbies to art. (Or if you are after a refresher of the basics.)
101: introduces students to painting & drawing skills with a programme that builds upon itself to reinforce the basics - and the reality that painting and drawing can be learned skills.
102: builds on the basics taught in Term 1 beginning with learning about composition and how to tackle various subjects such as still life, furry friends and landscapes. Great stuff!
Different Strokes - classes are for people looking for support & encouragement with their own art - with a wee 'Sneak Peek' to extend their Arty education each week to keep things fresh and interesting.
Sometimes when we are 'arting' we get stuck...
Stuck staring at a white canvas;
Stuck trying to work out what is not working in our latest piece - or
Stuck not knowing how to take our art to the next level.
Sometimes we simply need a skill we haven't learned yet.
Sometimes we just need a bit of support, fresh input and the encouragement or stimulation of others.
This is pretty much what these classes are about - bursting with positiveness and supported by a group safety net to enable all members to occasionally jump knowing all will be well.

My favourite Students:
Ok, so as a Teacher, it is simply wrong to admit to even the idea of having favourite students - but I must confess - some of the 'most wonderful' experiences I have had as a teacher have been when working with the student who claims 'I can't draw to save my life' - or 'I can't do that.'
It might be the 'know-it-all' in me, but I simply love proving them wrong!
I firmly believe no-one is born an Artist. Those who have attained that title have done so out of shear determination & hard work - and a willingness to both play and to be vulnerable.
Everyone can learn to paint & draw and although the odd person has pushed the boundaries of my belief - ultimately - I have not been proven wrong, yet :-)
My Happiness Guarantee:
Because I cannot bear the thought of anyone being tied into 9 weeks of classes they are not enjoying...
If after your first class you decide you totally hate Discoveries - or me (sniff),
I will REFUND your term's fees in full. Diana
