The online lessons are every day, Monday to Saturday 17: 00-19: 00 (Greece time UTC +3). You can participate in any lesson you want (every day, once a week, etc). The precondition for participation is to have a smartphone connected to a wifi network. How it works: Before the beginning of the lesson, you must have sent me your intention to participate or the photo of the icon you are working on. I will call you via the Internet, only with sound, not with video. I will give you instructions and I will make corrections on the photo of the icon that you sent me. You will see the correction process live on your screen and after our conversation, I will send you the correction you saw on your screen to apply it to your icon. If you want to ask something during the lesson, you can send me a text message via the internet or a new photo of your icon in the new status, so I will be able to help you continue, to answer your questions and to correct live as I said before.No previous experience is needed to participate in the course. The lesson is private in a group.

Lucy
Ancient history, Religious Studies, A-Level Psychology and Easy Baking
I am an Ancient History and Theology (and Religious Studies) University student who loves learning and teaching about these subjects. I studied psychology at A-Level, gaining an A*, and greatly loved this subject and, despite not studying it at University, I am eager to keep it in my life! Therefore, I would love to teach A-Level Psychology and believe I am capable in doing so. I have previous experience of tutoring in Psychology also. I received A*,A, B at A level (my university degree is to be completed later this year) and feel this reflects my love for my chosen subjects! I specialise in studies on Pompeii, Roman poetry, World War 2 (namely the Holocaust) and general RS topics- I can tailor my lessons to the needs of the student! I can provide worksheets, engaging informative slides on Powerpoint, memory quizzes/flashcards (which are a key way of instilling new information) and can also find the best revision and learning techniques for you as these are a very individual thing. I can also do classes on healthy cooking, and baking (this especially). You will be able to learn how to bake everything from a simple Victoria sponge cake (delicious!) to brownies, florentines, fudge and everything in between! You will learn how to cook healthy foods and meals which incorporate all your needed nutritional requirements on a minimum-effort basis. I look forward to hearing from you...

Traditional Art in all forms - student’s choice of medium.
This class is for artists who wish to learn any of the following mediums: - pencil - coloured pencil - watercolour - oil paint - gouache - ink and lineart This class is designed to be tailored to the specific needs of the student and their personal style. I am most proficient in realism but am also able to teach more cartoonesque styles for those who enjoy fan art or other kinds of stylized art. My teaching method is through mutual art - after discussion with the student, I will send you an image that we will both attempt to draw or replicate. The student is able to learn from my personal method, and I will be able to give live feedback and tips. I am currently set to go to university for games art in the autumn.

I gain a MA at the Chelsea College of Arts in London and therefore I can help you prepare your portfolio for university applications or teach you how to paint a portrait or a still life. If you are interested in gaining more knowledge of art History I can also help. For the last 9 years, I have been an assistant to British Painter Jonathan Yeo, working with him toward big national shows such as a show at the National Portrait Gallery, or international such as the one in Friederiksborg Castle in Denmark in 2016.

Jake
Oil painting for any level of skill and experience
Oil painting is arguably both the most rewarding and the most forgiving medium. Often misunderstood as too difficult and chemical-reliant, you will be shown how simple it can be to produce the most vibrant and atmospheric images. This class is applicable to all levels of skill, branching off into more complex ideas about image-making for those who already have experience with the medium. In such instances, we can begin to look at indirect painting approaches including underpainting and glazing.
