'Creativity takes courage'

Henri Matisse

Tutoring at Saredon Studios allows you to achieve your goals at your own pace. Alexandra provides visual Arts knowledge tailored to what you want to learn, giving you the skills and confidence to create and progress.

What is tutoring?

 

Tutoring isn’t about presenting you with the ‘right’ answers or handing you a copy & paste  set of instructions. Here at Saredon Studios we hold space for you to learn and develop your creative side. Alexandra will listen and work with you to create and develop goals based on your thoughts, current knowledge and skills. Inserting her perspective and expertise where relevant, supporting you into action to progress on your creative journey.

We have 4 core beliefs which shape the way we tutor at Saredon Studios:

  1. There is no right and wrong in the Arts, it really isn’t that black and white - Instead we have a million shades of grey, where sometimes a ‘mistake’ can be better than the planned outcome.

  2. Everyone can be creative - Every individual has the potential to be creative. If being creative is difficult for you it may mean you haven’t gained the confidence needed to play and experiment.

  3. Messy, uncomfortable action is both essential and the best way to learn - If you never start, you never learn how to progress. Frida Kahlo didn’t just wake up one day able to paint! She started somewhere, learnt from her action and progressed over time.

  4. You need a foundation to build upon to succeed - We give you the foundation of skills and knowledge in visual Arts to build upon and achieve.

Whilst there is no perfect step plan to achieve your creative aims we do believe: 

Clarity on what you want to learn and why + 

 A strategy of how you are going to get there 

= Positive action

We are for you if…

  • You want to be more creative but don’t know where to start.

  • You would like to pursue creative activities for health and mindfulness.

  • You lack the confidence to achieve your creative aims.

  • You lack the knowledge and skills needed to pursue your creative outlets.

  • You’re looking to improve your current skillset and knowledge.

  • You’re passionate about building a career or aiming for a qualification in the visual Arts.

  • You have creative ideas and thoughts but struggle to turn it into a plan and take action.

"Friendly, patient, supportive and very welcoming. Nice homely feel to the studio for nurturing Art & creativity."

No tutor is for everyone and ensuring Alexandra is the right fit for you (and vice versa) is important to us. If you are unsure get in touch to book an enquiry call and after getting a better idea of where you’re at Alexandra will give you her honest thoughts on how she can, or can’t support you.

 

As your tutor Alexandra will commit to…

  • Understanding your definition of success and support you in your creative practice, achieving your aims.

  • Celebrate your wins as if they’re our own!

  • Work flexibly to your pace, timelines and any unexpected life events.

  • Keep things fun, who said creating had to be boring!
