GCSE, AS, A Level and higher education portfolios.
Beverley has a wide range of experience helping students to prepare their portfolios for GCSE, AS, A Level and for art and design school applications. As a part-time teacher at Sir Roger Manwood's Grammar School in Kent, she is extremely familiar with the examination criteria and methods of helping students improve upon and make the most of their portfolios in order to achieve high grades at secondary school level. everley also works with students who are applying for a foundation course in art, and for places at university or art college who need to provide a portfolio for interview.
Preliminary consultations are without charge. After this sessions can be booked in order to discuss the portfolio in greater detail in relation to examination criteria or appropriateness for interview, to improve upon the presentation of the works, incorporate new works and techniques and work upon maximising the potential of the student's portfolio. Sessions can take place in Beverley's home and studio or at the home of the student depending on suitability. Sessions are charged at £22/hour, including materials.
One-to-one Adult Art Tuition
It doesn't matter how old you are or what ability you have, if you would like to improve upon lost skills or start as a complete beginner Beverley will be able to enhance your skills and rekindle your enjoyment in the process. Tuition can include drawing, painting and various printmaking processes, as well as digital drawing on iPads. Sessions are flexible to suit the student, and are always enjoyable and relaxed. Beverley's oldest student is in her late eighties, proving that you are never too old to pick up a pencil! Sessions are £22/hour including materials.
Helping the Community
Beverley volunteers at Margate Hospice, providing art classes for day patients. The classes consist of making 2D work using a variety of media, from traditional pencil drawings and watercolours to modern day techniques using iPads. The iPad classes have been a resounding success, with more iPads having recently been bought for the hospice. We are of course always looking for support to purchase more of these devices and run the classes free of charge to the hospice.
