I have been a figurative modeller for many years and had a classical training in the figure with drawing, sculpting and anatomy. Please see below for classes, workshops and casual life drawing group events.
A little bit about my experience: I've taught Art and Design and run sculpture workshops at undergraduate level. I have also over the years taught life drawing, portraiture and modelling from the figure for Art Centres, Adult Education and privately.
A little bit about my approach: I like teaching and I have a particular approach. Its based on the individual. So although I do group demonstrations or structured teaching and excercises, the development of each individual student and working with them is the most important thing to me.
