I offer fun and friendly tuition working in a variety of mediums ranging from watercolour, acrylics, pastels and mixed media to drawing techniques.
I offer my students projects based on ideas they might have suggested or that I feel relevant to their current skills to aid their progress. Working on group projects is optional and you can choose to work on your own project, receiving guidance and demonstrations on the best techniques to create your artworks.
- Future Tuition:
Sylvie Maney. Art was the one subject I was good at when I was at school, but having gained my GCE's I didn't take up the opportunity to go to art college, opting instead for science which sent me into a career in the oil industry, where I stayed until getting married and starting a family. I later became an adult education art tutor in 1992 having attended as a student for a short time; I was following a long held desire to persue my love of art after having my children.
I qualified as a tutor and enjoyed many years running numerous courses alongside exhibiting my own paintings around Essex. Following a few years 'distraction' by venturing into college management, I have now taken up the challenge of teaching art to local groups of people and throwing myself back into art with a passion; I'm back where I really belong!
I have enjoyed painting numerous wildlife subjects, landscapes and florals using a variety of different mediums, but I mostly work in watercolour and pastels, although I am leaning more towards acrylics most recently.
