Art Tutoring

Sue Faulks Private Tuition

Tailor made art tuition for all ages and abilities (individuals or groups).

It all began when my daughters were little, I would draw, paint and make things with them. I realized how much I enjoyed working with children and volunteered at my daughter’s school; Riverside Community Primary School. During ‘The Year of the Arts- 2003/04’ I ran design and illustration projects for Years 5 and 6.

This led to part time work, as a Learning Support Assistant, it was an invaluable experience. I learnt how to support children throughout the years (including those with Special Educational Needs) and how to plan and deliver curriculum to both individuals and groups.

“My husband and I contacted Sue in September 2011 to start a joint hobby. We were drawn by her fine art training, her flexibility and ability to teach a wide range of drawing and painting techniques. With Sue’s help we found that, to our great surprise, we have some artistic talent and ability after all! We hope to continue exploring and developing with her help.” — N&T Bradley

Often my role involved art, and for a year, I ran a ‘Gifted and Talented’ art group for children in Years 5 and 6. I helped select the children, source the materials and generate the curriculum. The children studied drawing; painting; ceramics; art history, and attended exhibitions. At the end of the year, they helped to organise their own exhibition, private view and guest list.

Since then, I have taught both children and adults from a wide cross section of society, and at many different venues. I have run a library art club; courses for children and adults; sessions for families in the community, and for churches and their youth groups; workshops for schools (both primary and secondary) and various art societies.

"Sue loved my story Galaxy’s Adventures and helped me animate it with my drawings.” — Beth Chamberlain 18 years

“I really enjoyed your class, as usual. You always give us so many ideas.” — Ursula Greaves

From my home studio I have had a growing number of private pupils, from a 5 year old (who needs 4 cushions to sit on!) to someone wanting to improve their skills before starting a Computer Gaming Degree. Some come individually, some together as family members or friends, all wanting to learn together for pleasure.

“What a friendly and relaxed way to learn basic artistic skills! Sue's lovely, unique studio, her warm, friendly manner & expertise all helped me to really enjoy learning something new.” — Kathryn Noble

I cover a wide cross- section of subject matter and media, from drawing to painting, to craft. I like to work on projects that are of interest to my pupils, whilst teaching them fundamental skills and techniques (equipment is usually provided).
