Information About Victoria - Roehampton teacher
This is how 2 referees rated Victoria:
I am a very friendly and welcoming practicing professional painter and sculptor, working from my home studio in Wimbledon.
I graduated from Wimbledon College of Art, (UAL) in 2012 with an MA in Fine Art and in 2011 with a BA in Fine Art.
I work in sculpture, drawing and painting.
I exhibit in London and regional group exhibitions.
I visit regularly museums and art exhibitions in London and very happy to take students with me on my expeditions for looking and sketching.
I teach all ages, but specifically specialise with year 7's, 9-12 yrs old, common entrance and scholarship students.
I have a maximum capacity of 7 students. (one a day)
One to one tutoring and online tutoring. I partake in group practice critiques and reading groups with professional artists.
My art sessions are very much a collaboration between student and teacher. I use my own practice as an artist to propel the conversation, I have a comprehensive reference with which to motivate and inspire my students.
It is a practice led process that I initiate for students, and I collaborate in a relaxed but fully informative and sensitive manner with parents. I find this to be hugely useful, that marks very authentically the progress and growth of the student. Nothing is lost on us!
I have a gifted student currently who is building a portfolio for submission for a scholarship as part of 11+ examinations. I have also tutored a gentleman in retirement who wanted to create a portrait of his grand daughter. I have students that wish to simply discuss art, and we do so in person phone and online. I am excited to find more students, and am confident I am in the right place. I look forward to further instruction.
I have an open and adaptive approach, in that each student is unique and has something individual to express. Everyone has different desires for their arts discovery.
I take into account experience knowledge and ambitions and devise a structural plan for progression. I draw up a list of artists for the student to study, both contemporary and classic. I reference writers artists of all sorts in specificity for the student that is ongoing throughout the teaching sessions. I hope my students also to make their own research, and to bring to light their own sources of inspiration and reference. I encourage documentation both of resource and personal note making.
I am taking into account schedules, art resources, studio space, budget, capacity for progression.
I attempt to make the sessions uplifting, to encourage personality and ambition. The arts in education is very much a two way process. Either person can take the lead.
I hope to share my own passionate sensibilities towards the arts. Encouraging them to enjoy all genres and mediums of art.
I keep the parents very well informed of process and progress. The entire teaching endeavour includes the entire household, artists need good news, natural objects and cake!! We hope very much to disseminate our passions to fellow inhabitors!
