ONE-TO-ONE THERAPEUTIC ART TUITION/COACHING IN CHEDDAR, SOMERSET
Learning to paint and draw is actually very simple, it's just understanding how to really see what you're looking at, applying a few art principles and then putting in the practice. You can teach yourself to draw and paint from books or online or there are loads of amazing and qualified Art Teachers out there in the world to choose from.
My speciality is working with people on an individual basis supporting their own unique and personal journey with their art-making.
An artist by nature, my background is in business, mainly Human Resources, and latterly as a Homeopath. Over the years I have spent time healing and understanding who I am as a person to enable me to grow as a Practitioner, alongside understanding who I am as an Artist and why I make the kind of art I make.
Understanding who you are as an Artist and what you want your art to be about can free you up and release creative blocks
I find it so rewarding teaching people who always wanted to make art
but never thought they could draw or paint at all.
Examples of people I have already helped with One-to-One therapeutic art tuition:
those who lack confidence with their art and need someone beside them for gentle and encouraging support as they work.
those who have never drawn or painted before and want individual tuition.
those who are already painting and are struggling with artists blocks.
those who want to go deeper into understanding their art, why they make it and how to be more authentic with their art.
those who want to find their artists style and voice.
those who want to make art to facilitate healing.
those who want to explore a new and different way of working.
those who just want to be challenged with their painting.
those who just want a regular time and place to be able to paint.
One-to-One tuition is for anyone who just wants individual attention wherever they are on their art journey and whatever they want to learn
I must state that One-to-One Therapeutic Art Tuition is not art therapy, nor a therapy session, although making art can be extremely therapeutic and allows natural healing to happen. It's about you learning about your art, supported by my therapeutic approach, and tailored to exactly what you want to achieve with your art-making, at a pace that suits you. Whether you just want to learn to draw or paint, or you really want to delve into understanding who you are as a person and an Artist, I can support you on that journey. Most importantly, art is about having fun, feeling relaxed and being excited about what you are creating.
One-to-one tuition is held in my home studio in Cheddar, Somerset, a two minute walk from Cheddar Gorge caves, cafe's and shops. There is plenty of free parking directly outside, a level walk, and two small steps up into the studio. As my focus is on connecting to your individual style and taste, you will need to bring your own art materials with you, which will allow you to be able to continue working at your home. A materials list and help will be given if you need advice on what to purchase.
It is so rewarding to be able to help people connect to
their inner artist that they never even knew existed.
