There are many ways of drawing. Some are analytical and others are more creative. I like to teach a method which incorporates both together.

I teach people how to see and translate that into marks you can read and appreciate as being your own work, whether it's expressive or representational.

For details on drawing courses please email Tom with your enquiry.

Classes are on an ad hoc basis and are customised to the needs of the students, whether they are individuals or groups.

Teaching affords the teacher insights into their own process. You truely know something when you can transmit it to another person.

Confideniality is assured.
