Personally tailored Art classes (taught in English) for all ages and abilities — painting, drawing, watercolour, and digital!

Hej hej!

I am an English artist with a Master of Visual Art postgraduate degree, passionate about working with people of all ages and abilities!

I run art classes, teaching entirely in English (British). I tailor my classes to each student and am able to travel or hold classes at my location.

The focus of the class would depend on your own goals so we would begin by working out what is important and fun to you rather than following a strict 'one size fits all' lesson plan.

I have lots of experience with children, so if this class is for your kids, you can think of it as paying for a nanny at the same time!

Please look at my website for different examples of art I make in my own practice and get in touch with any questions.

I would love to hear from you soon and can't wait to make some art with you!

Extra information

Depending on your current ability level and your goals, we will work out the best way forward before I recommend you to buy any materials.

(For the first lesson, I am able to provide materials.)

About Me

I am a professional artist from England. I spent the last 10 years living and working in New Zealand, and have recently moved to the beautiful Uppsala, Sweden.

I am as passionate about teaching and learning as I am about art!

I have designed and produced a range of greeting cards that I sell through stores in New Zealand and my own webshop. I have illustrated books (from Science books published by Springer, to children's storybooks); sold paintings and sculptures, and designed and manage my own website.

I would love to hear more about you and your goals. Why are you thinking about taking art classes? Is there something, in particular, that you want to learn? Do get in touch and let me know - I can't wait to hear from you and make some art together!

Reviews (2)

Excellent and very relaxing painting class!
They say that if one can't explain something in it's most basic form then the individual doesn't trully understand their craft. Well, Katy's lessons have allowed me, a complete novice, to pick up something that is way outside of my comfort zone or usual area of venturing. I really enjoy the class approach, professional but relaxed. Learning things fast but easy. Very happy and highly recommend Katy!

Find yourself painting with me. Painting/Sketching/Graphics design for Kids
Life is an art. It is a fact that Painting/Sketching improves concentration, helps relieve from stress and makes the person more productive in everything they do. I am a young artist from India. I could teach Acrylic painting, Watercolor painting, Glass painting and sketches. Also, I teach kids improve their sketches to digital painting using Adobe Creative suite. I prefer to teach kids as they need more patience and attention and of course fun. Contact me for more information.

Learn Art You Can Enjoy: For Beginners & Intermediates
Art is a wonderful thing we all deserve to enjoy or learn; However, some find it difficult to teach themselves. I am an A-Level student studying Fine Art, Game design and Film Studies- capable of teaching beginners how to perfect their basics and develop their art style as well as introducing intermediate artists to new ideas and ways to improve themselves. As a beginner, you will learn many things; from shading, use of colour and line-work to finding your own personal style. Don't worry if this seems like a daunting task, you can take it at your own speed and i will support you all the way. After all, art is something you can't rush or force.

Learn the history of the arts: learn and deepen
The history of the arts is my passion, my hobby and the subject of my license in Humanities, as well as my specialty at the BAC. Whether you are preparing for college or high school exams, whether you are passionate about a certain period or a certain movement, or even want to be initiated, this course is for you! In a playful form, it will be a question of learning more about the different artists and thinkers of History and especially of understanding their implication on our current world. It will be a question of putting an end to the belief that the history of the arts is reserved for the elite, because it can light up the life of each one. I can advise you on writings, films, magazines, broadcasts, series ... which make art history and art history an affordable and fundamental discipline.

Theatre design, including costume design, set design, puppetry and prop making.
My sessions would include; Set Design – How to read and analyze a script/story, what to look out for, and how to breakdown each scene. Creating visual research and mood boards and how to make clear initial sketches in whatever preferred medium, (pen, water colour Photoshop etc) An introduction to modelmaking, making basic furniture, and miniature rooms. Costume Design – Looking at costume history, how clothes have changed through the ages, and what shapes and silhouettes fit what eras. Costume drawings, looking at how to draw a clear design that could be understood by the whole creative team, as well as working with mixed media in costume design, ie. collage, photo shop. A look at costume making and sourcing, how I work as a designer when I am doing my own costumes, how I source, make or alter different items. Puppetry – An introduction to puppetry, the history and basic different types, marionette, bunraku etc. How to make your own bunraku puppet, all you would need is cardboard and gaffa tape. How to make shadow puppets out of card and straws, and how to rig a sheet and light so we can perform them.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.

Expanding Creativity and thinking in Art and Design.
My Class focuses on expanding your understanding of what Art is Practically and theoretically. I will work around your specific interests and skills and assist you to explore your own personal practice. This may especially be helpful for Students hoping to apply to the top Modern Art Universities. Universities are looking for future thinking artists wanting to explore new Mediums and Ideas. This is the most important thing that schools often fail to teach. Workshops and Activities will enable you to understand the motivation behind your work, identify themes of interest and allow your creative mindset to blossom. Problem-solving, critical thinking, and learning how to overcome creative blocks will all be assisted with. I can help you with particular projects or generally, increase your creative capabilities. Observational drawing is a key skill for its use to improve 'Seeing' as opposed to looking as well as communicating Ideas. Beyond that, I encourage my student to go beyond painting to mixed media - sculpture - installation - film and photography. All different forms of expression often forgotten about in other art classes. One to one tuition gives pupils the freedom to truly explore. I will introduce you to theoretical ideas and concepts to help you explore why do you create art? To push you into new directions, and utilise your full potential.
