Teaching/Lectures

Rebecca Ivatts

Rebecca has been teaching art - from life Drawing and landscape classes to her innovative 'Take a line for a walk' workshops - to adults and children for a number of years.

Here is a testimonial from a life model who has worked with Rebecca:

"Rebecca is wonderful. In the 6 years that I have been life modelling (for all the main art schools and life rooms in London), I have not come across a more inspiring teacher. Her encouraging language and articulate instruction is so refreshing to work with. She really brings out the best in her students by enthusiastically inviting everyone to investigate the form with a curious eye and simply make a mark, remaining open and responsive. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and be witness to the incredible works of art that came from everyone in the class."
