 “In a world consumed by consumerism, never feel the need to justify your creativity” – Clare Nicholson

HSC students

With in-depth knowledge of the NSW Department of Education Board of Studies Visual Art syllabus, Clare is able to help students extend their practical artmaking skills and critical art theory criticism in order that they excel in the HSC.  With an emphasis on curriculum objectives, outcomes and the need to apply higher order critical thinking to art, Clare fosters an exploration of the conceptualisation of ideas and the representation of those ideas through the artwork. Being aware that art theory is often the stumbling block for many students, Clare has designed art theory educational resources that have been implemented in various high schools as highly affective teaching tools.  These resources enable students to deconstruct the visual image, whilst succinctly teaching  ‘The Frames’ as defined within the HSC course and have become invaluable towards students learning how to discuss images- including communicating their own intentions in their own artwork.

Tuition is delivered within an extremely supportive learning environment, where students are encouraged to explore the intellectualisation of ideas and artmaking. Tuition takes place at Clare’s Annandale studio, Sydney or at the student’s home if their body of work is not easily transportable or they prefer this option. Please don’t hesitate to call her on 0402 526 087 or send a message via the contact page.

Adults

Clare enjoys the journey of sharing her skills in order that others may experience the joy of artistic exploration and growth. With a deep belief that we are all intrinsically creative, Clare will help guide you towards finding your own visual expression and style. Clare’s approach is always highly supportive whilst honouring the unique individuality we all bring to art, with a strong sense of enthusiasm along the way.

Tuition is designed to suit your requirements from absolute beginners to advanced within a highly supportive environment. Private one-on-one lessons are available throughout the year and small group classes as announced. Tuition takes place at Clare’s Annandale studio, Sydney or at your home if preferred.
