To help you decide what level course is most suited, you will see Teaching Levels explained within the Course Info tab.
Students will always benefit from clear instructions, lots of one-to-one tuition, guidance and supportive encouragement on all of my courses.
Level 0: Absolute-beginner For absolute-beginners to start learning art for the first time. Teaching focuses on core skills with step-by-step instructions.
Level 1: Beginner For beginners looking to establish, refresh and gain confidence in fundamental core techniques.
Level 2: Improver For improvers who already have the basics and wish to develop and enhance their skills and techniques further.
Level 3: Intermediate For those students with a growing, but limited, amount of art experience who feel confident in their art knowledge and skills yet recognise the need for further creative learning to take their art to the next level.
Level 4: Experienced For those students with creative experience who feel confident in their abilities and techniques, who are looking to challenge themselves further, to create a coherent body of work, possibly to exhibit and sell.
