Who is the tutor?

About the Tutor: Lorella Tudor

Having graduated in 1989 with a BA (Hons) in Related Arts, Lorella became an Adult Education Tutor in 1991. Over her twenty year career she has taught numerous drawing and painting classes and summer schools and, more recently, in partnership with local Schools instructed ‘AS' level pupils in Life Drawing and created a wall mural for a Family Learning project. Courses include Portraits, Life Drawing, Still Life observation and Landscape painting using a variety of different media. Lorella has exhibited periodically in solo shows, open exhibitions, festivals etc in West Sussex and Kent. Her portfolio of work demonstrates a fascination with the human form and portraiture but her interest in mixed media working has moved her focus more recently to still life and landscape pieces using Collage and Photomontage.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. Students will need to understand the potential benefit from the programme of study, read and interpret ideas, communicate responses that are clear, logical and understandable and manage your own time. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.
