HSC Visual Arts (in New South Wales, Australia) has begun again with most students being assessed on the theoretical and practical components of the course.
A tutor often can provide the insight and assistance that some teachers don’t have have time for or can’t connect with the student in a meaningful way. In other ways, I can provide essay writing support and ideas together with examination preparation.
I am open to suggestions and ideas that suit the student and have recently Skyped with a student to provide essay assistance.
So contact me and see how I can assist you or your sone or daughter in creating artwork and/or in the theory aspect of the course
Finally… you actually have some time to tick off a few things off your list… and acquire some those skills you have always said you would. Just imagine, your life long goal of artistic personal satisfaction is just around the corner! Refreshing those art skills or getting back into practical art is so rewarding and personally satisfying – with others in a class or individually.
Currently, I lead workshops for those that “have always wanted” to get back into some artmaking or those who wonder if the high school approach to art has changed much over the years. Fortunately, for tutor and student it has indeed changed and adult art classes allow for a range of possibilities and learning styles to be customised and developed to suit your own needs and wishes.
The artwork above, created by an adult student, demonstrates some of the skills and approaches towards artmaking. Where making mistakes and trying out something new is encouraged. Art making in 2018 is about being open to new ideas and seeing things from a different perspective perhaps or in a new light.
If this is on your bucket list, now is time to be creative, to get that green coloured pencil and tick this one off your list.

The latest (THIS WEEK!) instalment of my workings with structures and abstraction. The variations of space and layering continues to provide visual interest as well as inspirations for an imagined connection of ideas and lines, shape and colour
Abstraction and abstracted images plays a large part in my work. The idea of a “suggestion” or “reference” is certainly entertained and played upon.
This from 1986 is no exception. Collaging and drawing to create a suggested landscape…or is it? What do you find in there? Feel free, it’s OK to see and feel other ideas and thoughts about what the work might be about. Asking questions and thinking about possibilities is good and welcomed.
As with most contemporary art…you might not connect at first but keep thinking, keep trying.
