Or perhaps you’ve always wanted to improve your drawing or painting skills simply for pleasure and to learn the rudiments of direct observational study; life drawing has been a mainstay for as long as I can remember, and hundreds of younger learners and senior artists have benefitted from private tuition since I started teaching.
The discipline of drawing and art practice in general, rewards individuals with the sanctuary of mindfulness in addition to the benefit of skill-based progress
I can teach across all media to groups or individuals – even demonstrate how to throw a pot! – I am happy to receive bespoke enquiries.
"Stuart is a great teacher, he always makes every class interesting & different each week, inspired us by using various materials & techniques in different ways stretching our www.*** is always positive with his criticism which encouraged you to produce some great works, this makes the classes enjoyable discussing our work together, feeling the group were a team.
His interest & encouragement has inspired me to continue with life drawing. "
"If I have any regret of my time being tutored by Stuart it is that I only joined his group a year before he moved away from Bury St Edmunds yet even in that short time with his remarkable skills as a teacher I found my drawing skills generally; and figure drawing skills in particular; improved considerably. Because of his instruction and guidance and the foundation it gave me my art has developed and evolved to embrace most media and other genre. I will always be grateful to him."
"Stuart manages to bring variety in his approach to classes. Some weeks he positions tables propped upright on their ends and we work in various media on paper the full size of the model. Sometimes we draw a model who moves in various ways in rotation. Our still life evenings are also different, he brings in a pigs head for us to draw, and also a brace of pheasants. Stuart is always very encouraging. He covers all the basics in teaching us how to measure the body by eye, by aligning different parts of the body, and demonstrates different media techniques. "
"Stuart came with enthusiasm and willingness to share his skills. Within the group hw was able to bring out individual artistic talents. He gave us confidence to attempt many different techniques.
My art abilities are definitely built on groundings set by him"
24 years experience of teaching art & design in secondary school. I have worked with primary age children and students with SEN
I have been teaching in a inner city school in Birmingham. During my time there I have taught a wide variety of subjects including: social sciences, DT, food, religious studies and PSHE.
I have worked a lot with young people who have additional needs ranging from physical needs to learning difficulties and English as an additional language.
I have many years experience teaching all key stages at secondary level and working with transition groups from primary schools. As Head of Art & Design for approximately 15 years this has given me a good grounding and understanding of curriculum and examination requirements. Therefore I am able to offer the best advice and guidance for pupils needing help with coursework portfolios. The many years of teaching has also enabled me to build upon a range of skills across a variety of media. From home, I have a purpose build workshop from which I run various workshops for ceramic handbuilding and throwing, also stone sculpting. As a practicing artist I am able to offer tutees, whether secondary school age or adult, a greater understanding of how an artist develops not only their ideas but their marketing value too. Other than the workshops at my home I have also been commissioned by several companies to run workshops with groups of adults or children. Being able to differentiate abilities in these circumstances is an essential skill as is forward planning and preparation.
I am a Central Saint Martins MA Fine Art graduate, with a BA in classical painting techniques awarded by the University of Arts in Bucharest, and have more than five years experience in teaching art to all ages (including very young students). I have been collaborating on artistic educational projects with the National Gallery and Watermans Arts Center and with various schools and cultural institutes in London. I have a track record of helping students achieve their highest potential in mastering various fine art techniques and being admitted at top art and architecture universities or obtaining excellent results in GCSE, A-level exams and Art Scholarship examinations. I also have a personal method that helps adult learners that are beginners in painting and drawing techniques get excellent artistic skills and discover a personal, expressive style. As an artist, I have experience in classical painting techniques as well as contemporary art (such as installation art, conceptual or participatory art projects) and I strongly believe in the unique creative potential of each individual, which I hope my art classes also help uncover. I currently teach fine art classes for ages 4 to adult learners at London School of Arts and collaborate on educational projects with galleries, as well as following my own artistic practice. My art projects sometimes blur the lines between the artistic and the educational fields, and I consider teaching a form of art. I have, therefore, a very personal approach to teaching and often collaborate artistically with my students.

I have been an Art & Design teacher in the Southampton area since September 1997.

I have always fostered excellent relationships with my students and particularly prize the strong working relationships I have developed with a range of learners. I also feel in some cases that it is important to develop links with parents allowing them to support and encourage the students further in their education.
Within my time in education I have produced dynamic and creative areas of learning which offer a range of academic and vocational courses where students have experienced studying from level 1 to level 4. I have assisted younger students with their progression from school as well as adult learners into college and onto higher education and employment. I aim to develop students work to meet or exceed the requirements of their expected qualifications, learning goals or employment. I ensure that the students feel happy and confident in their studies. I strongly believe that students should be able to express themselves and understand the world around them. Through their studies students should be able to communicate their thoughts and ideas and demonstrate the development of their practical skills. I am enthusiastic about encouraging students through my pastoral role to research their subjects and their progressionary aims using appropriate resources such as journals, books and appropriate internet sites. I have provided good liaison throughout my time in education between schools, colleges and local HE providers such as Southampton Solent University, The Arts University Bournemouth and Winchester School of Art. I am always constantly striving to improve student confidence through high quality teaching and learning. I am now keen to use and develop my skills and knowledge within the wider area of art and design teaching and I am particularly excited about tutoring individual students to fulfil their individual goals.
I currently hold the post of Director of Learning and Standards for Art and Design as well as Design and Food Technology at a large secondary school in Sandwell.

I have previosuly taken groups which had a pass rate of 67% A*-C to 88% A*-C within 2 terms as a result of my dedicated teaching.
