After running art after school clubs for 7 years, I had to stop due to juggling childcare. I am now offering tuition 1:1 after school at my home in Sydenham, and every Saturday morning for 9-11 year olds which specialises in portfolio prep for scholarships.
We try to develop the artist within the child by creating an experimental and colourful environment to convey different art forms.
To teach history of art along with different art activities
To question a child’s way of thinking and looking at an object/subject
Improve and learn fundamental art skills
And most important of all have fun
A Typical Lesson:
Start with the history and theory, whist exploring different artists.
Adapting and influencing the children’s own artistic style in the given subject.
Exploring different techniques in the chosen media for the lesson and adapting and influencing the children’s own artistic style in the given subject.
