Information about Andrew
My name is Andrew and I`m a fine artist based in Fleet, Hampshire.
I have been painting for over 15 years professionally, specialising in oil painting, working in a realist and expressive style. My painting practice derives from a hyper-realistic background, a style which I studied and explored during and after my university education in 2008, where I graduated with a 1st class (Hons) degree in Fine Art.
My main passions are within the visual arts and teaching drawing and painting. I am also interested in teaching people with learning difficulties and exploring art in a therapeutic way to help people in with diverse abilities and needs.
Eventually I want to study for an MA in Art psychotherapy and become an art therapist.
Availability: I am available to teach any day of the week, apart from Monday & Thursday mornings currently.
I`ll update the student with any discrepancies which might come up nearer the time of booking lessons in relation to lesson days/times.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have been teaching privately for over 8 years, conducting one to one sessions and small workshops to students with a varying abilities, skills and mixed age ranges.
I specialise in teaching different styles of painting, for example impasto expressionism to fine technical realism, mostly concentrating on acrylic and oil based paints.
The subject matter I specialise in is usually portraits and landscape, although I encourage my students to explore all facets of visual arts including mixed media and abstract painting which I also have experience in my own artistic practice.
Besides painting I tutor drawing techniques with pencils, charcoal, chalk and oil pastel as well.
Currently I teach at the `Disability Initiative` charity in Camberley, where I am an observational and technical art instructor to people with both mental and physical disabilities. At the charity I support clients to fulfil their artist potential to create personal and group artworks throughout the course of a 12 week rolling programme.
I`ve also taught for over 8 years at Arthouse Unlimited and The Meath Epilepsy Charity where I delivered similar workshop sessions to groups of people with learning difficulties and epilepsy. Their art works are sold to the public and exhibited in professional exhibitions and art fairs.
