Teaching

I have been teaching art for 20 years.  Since 2009, I have been specialising in private instruction to students in grades 6-8 to help them prepare their visual art portfolios for the Art Program at Canterbury High School.  I also coach High School students who are preparing their art portfolios for college and university, including programs in Animation and Architecture  The preparation of an art portfolio is a process.  My goal is to work closely with students, one on one, to help them strengthen their artistic voice, hone skills and bring their unique visions to life.

Portfolio Preparation Streams

A) Portfolio Preparation for Canterbury High School.

B) Portfolio Preparation for Post-Secondary Education including Art College/University, Animation programs and Architecture.

C) Personal Portfolio Development. This is a portfolio development program for student artists who are interested in working on their own art in an independent and self-directed way.  Unlike programs A) or B) there is no admission criteria or externally imposed deadline here.  There may be no external goal in mind – only an internal drive to gain confidence in a particular skill set or craft, further a concept and/or a desire to explore new media and subject matter in a freer and more open arena.
