Hello! My name is Rebecca and I am a UK based Art Tutor who enjoys sharing knowledge and skills with others. After completing a BA (Hons) Illustration, I worked as a Freelance Illustrator, creating images for magazines and greeting cards; past clients have included BBC Worldwide, Emap, Camden Graphics and more.
I am also a fully qualified teacher and have taught art for many years, something I really enjoy. During this time I have taught many complete beginners and understand what a daunting journey it can be! With this in mind I write this informative blog to answer all the questions I have had from learners over the years. This site aims to demystify art which can be surrounded by lots jargon, rules and a confusing array of materials for those starting out.
I hope that you find some useful tips, advice, knowledge and inspiration here for the beginner and those that have been drawing and painting for some time. Maybe it will give you the confidence to pick up the pencil and paintbrush for the first time, I hope so!
I publish my posts on a range of topics around learning to draw and paint once a week, every week on a Saturday around 10am UK time.
