Held by Alex Jakob-whitworth
I believe that we can all draw, and that we can all learn to draw and paint, and express ourselves and our experience of the world in a visual way.
My belief is that this is a twofold process. One is learning to “see”, and the other is learning the techniques of drawing. We use these to create an representation on a 2D surface. We then communicate visually, our experiences, thoughts and responses to our world and our lives.
I have been teaching adults for over fifteen years; Life Drawing, Adult Education classes, workshops, demonstrations and critiques for Art Clubs and Societies, individual tutoring, and health and well-being group such as the Alzheimer’s Society and the Stroke Survivors, and private classes.
Taking part in art activities, is immensely valuable, from the completely terrified “Beginner”, to the developing and curious “Transitional/ Improver”, as well as those who have experience but want to try something different or explore new horizons.
