Have you ever been frustrated in not being able to understand the writings of William Shakespeare? It can be very tricky and overwhelming: archaic words, long sentences, subtle meanings… . In this course I explain some sonnets and famous speeches in Shakespeare's plays line by line. In a surprise session I also discuss the creation of my Shakespeare sculpture! After taking my course, you will understand, not only the words, but also how to relate the works of literature to your own life and the world around you. They will be gems of knowledge that you can share with anyone who loves poems and plays.
I love teaching art because it keeps me going back to doing diverse activities in regards to different types of art and techniques. If you have ever wanted to delve more deeply into understanding and creating art, I can help! Let’s enjoy art together! My courses will be in painting. I have professional experience as an artist and sculptor. I have completed a prestigious sculpture commission for The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and have had my sculpture inspired by King Lear permanently installed in Stratford-upon-Avon. From my courses you can expect to take a closer and more observant look at master paintings. You will improve your painting skills such as color mixing and brush technique. You will come away with paintings that I hope will beautify your home! Anyone can create art!
