"Katie's 'Drawing from Nature' class to be a supportive and stimulating learning experience. It made me feel encouraged and challenged to apply myself to very detailed drawing of natural objects. I learnt some technical skills and and enjoyed the support from Katie and the other students.
I was very happy with my final artwork. I would recommend these classes to anyone wanting to spend some time developing their art and picking up new skills."
Welcome, so glad to see you here.
I am a professional artist with a passion for sharing my knowledge in a fun and informative way. I believe everyone can learn to draw. I studied art for ten years, I have a Masters of Fine Art and have been supporting artists for nearly two decades. I have been running my own classes since for nearly ten years and teach drawing at university in Melbourne as well.
I am a Melbourne based artist who makes large-scale drawings, mixed media works, oil paintings and multi-sensory installations.I have been tutoring and mentoring artists for the last 15 years. I started running art classes at Span Community House in Thornbury in 2011.
I genuinely believe that anyone can learn to draw and that the basic techniques are a skill set like reading and writing.
I have an encouraging and friendly approach. I teach in a fun, challenging and experimental way, while imparting a strong knowledge of traditional techniques and skills as well.
I hold a Masters of Fine Art and a Honours Degree in Fine Art majoring in Drawing from RMIT where I studied under renowned drawing teacher Godwin Bradbeer. I have been life drawing for 25 years. I have held 15 solo exhibitions, and my artwork in held in many private collections.
