Joanna’s teaching gives students a new way of looking at form, a very different view on drawing, one could say. Showing them that drawing is so much more than the very narrow niche.

She gives them a more open approach to drawing, through looking at negative spaces, points of ‘action’, and generally to students learn to percieve form through a whole lot of different teaching tools.

Joanna’s teaching opens her students’ eyes to the very broad pallette of markmaking, and after only a few some lessons, students have a more fluid eye-hand connection.

“What I, from my point of view, see Joanna as doing, as a teacher is awe-invoking. She manages, consistantly, to inspire the students, and me, by being the unique force she is.”
