Classes

CLASSES

I have experience of teaching engaging and informative classes for all ages and abilities.  Some examples include evening adult drawing classes in the beautiful setting of Clifton Nurseries, lunchtime art workshops in a company board room in the city of London and drop in drawing afternoons at National Trust’s Fenton House.  Last year I ran a Big Draw Event in Clifton Nurseries where over a hundred people in the local community said hello to their creative side, picked up a pencil and drew on a collaborative artwork.  Please contact me if you would like information about forthcoming classes or are interested to collaborate.

Experimental Drawing Workshop with Venetia, 14 April 2018.  In this mixed media workshop explore nature close up as well as local views and landscapes, using a variety of expressive marks and detailed observations.  More information to follow.  Venue: Chapel Cottage Studio, Llanddewi Rhydderch, Monmouthshire NP7 9TT

TUTORING

I have tutored Art to a large number of students over the last seven years.  My experience includes preparing students for Art Scholarships, GCSE, A-Level, applying for art school, BA Fine Art and helping to build confidence.  I am very happy to teach all abilities and age groups.  I currently work with several of London’s best education consultancies including Gabbitas Education, Dukes Education, Enjoy Education and British Home Tutors.  One of my recent students was awarded an art scholarship.  I really enjoy helping and inspiring students on their own creative journey.

I am accommodating and happy to travel to my student’s homes anywhere in London or to a location of their choice.  I hold an up-to-date DSB (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly CRB) certificate.  I can forward a copy of certificate and reference upon request.

Hourly tutoring rate for one student begins from £65.

Please contact me for further information.

 

TESTIMONIALS

“My daughter has enjoyed very much creating art with Venetia, who has guided her through so many different materials.  Venetia has been a very lovely and fun teacher and has helped her to create a wonderful portfolio.” (PR, London 2017)

“Venetia has been wonderful for my daughter, whose technique has improved hugely under her guidance.  She is unfailingly patient, kind and encouraging, and is excellent at communicating clearly and getting to the heart of a problem.  She has been brilliant for my daughter’s self-confidence, while extending her awareness of the wonderful world of art.”  (KEC, London 2016)

“Thanks again for the wonderful classes.  I’ve done the odd art class over the last couple of years, but not enjoyed any as much as yours.  It would be fab if you and Clifton Nurseries could team up again.” (AW, London 2016)

“It was such a good idea to team up with Clifton to have the Thursday evening drawing classes.  I really enjoyed the classes and your expertise was much appreciated.  I am looking forward to the Big Draw and hope there will be more classes in the future.”  (JL, London 2015)
