Meet Your Instructor Tom

Relaxed and experienced

"I became keen on drawing and art when I was about twelve and have since spent much time doing it.It is very exciting to start the morning with a blank canvas and have a painting on it by the end of the day.

It gives a very basic and real feeling of satisfaction and a day well spent. Drawing becomes a language if you practice it regularly.

And it is much easier to learn then Swiss German."

Encouraging and enthusiastic

"Everyone can learn to draw and everyone can be creative. Encouraging and building up confidence is as important as teaching the basic skills.

I enjoy the interaction and discussions with students and I learn things too. I think we all enjoy having two 'digital free' hours of focused concentration in the classes.

I have been an artist over 35 years and I have been teaching 15 years at schools and universities. I am looking forward to supporting you advance with your drawing skills."
