HOW DOES IT WORK?
If you are a self-taught artist who would like to hone a particular skill set to further your art practice and find your unique visual language – then these highly personalised art classes are perfect for you.
If you would like to do this in an environment focused on learning new skills, I would love to encourage you to complete a quick questionnaire to understand which skills you would like to develop. Next, we’ll craft a programme around your specific goals. Once we have a clear programme outlined, the classes would take place at my studio in Sandton at a pace that suits you.
As artists, we often tend to think torturing ourselves in solitude will develop the depth and fortitude we need to be a true artist. But I don’t believe that, and neither should you. We need to be around each other to grow and find our own personal sense of expression through the interplay with people and environments.
I have a Masters Degree in Fine Arts and have been a practicing artist for 20 years. I would love to help you discover your true expression by sharing my individual process for producing sellable artworks. It will be a highly personalised collaboration between teacher and student.
Please note: You will need to purchase your own materials depending on what you would like to create, but I will guide you about what to purchase and bring.
