About the Tutor
Artist Katie Roberts
I am Katie Roberts, 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 everyone 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.
I work from my studio at home locally near Northcote.
