From the Old Masters to modern art marvels, our art tutors take inspiration from across ages, disciplines and techniques. Working with multiple media – new and old – we help our students rediscover their creativity in a collaborative, safe space.
Our tutors are both gifted artists and talented teachers, using their own experiences to inspire and challenge. There’s time for self-expression, as well as reflection, and a focus on the principles and techniques that shape a piece of work, into a work of art.
A picture paints a thousand words
Our art history tuition is designed to encourage students to interrogate the world around them. To draw on visual clues to learn about different people and places, to gain new perspectives, to deepen their understanding of others – and of themselves.
We cover core course content, and offer a wider discourse, designed to broaden perspectives. And for those taking art history to university or post-graduate level, we’ll finetune the reading, writing and exam techniques needed to flourish.
Taking inspiration – and our name – from an ancient symbol of knowledge, we want Figtree to embody both the wisdom of experience and the power of continual growth.
We understand that by choosing Figtree as your tutoring agency, you’re putting your trust and your child’s future – or your future – in our hands. And that’s not a responsibility we take lightly. That’s why we’re always ready to go the extra mile – whether that’s checking-in outside hours, providing a unique support network for our tutors to tap into, or simply offering a listening ear when you need us.
