I find tutoring to be a constantly evolving project. It supports my creative work as it requires that I not only understand my processes but can apply them in a way that is useful to other people in their quest for creative flow. Harnessing a fluid and responsive working method, can address all sorts of practical or emotional obstacles that students face. It can be quite literally life-changing.

Currently a senior lecturer at Falmouth University, I have delivered courses for twenty years for BA and MA students all over the UK, from Glasgow School of Art to The Royal College of Art.

The subject matter in my own work can be anything in the visual field – observed and simplified through drawing, remembered and abstracted through painting, and developed into an image or object through endless re-arrangement of materials and waiting; allowing time for the scraps to find their place and purpose.

What our students say

The course adverts really don’t get across the inspirational elements of the experience. It reawakens the artist in everyone.

Liz Grindrod

I liked being taken somewhere I’d never imagined going. I’d follow Camilla anywhere she wanted to lead (artistically speaking, and within reason).

Pauline Johnston

Camilla so skillfully met the individual needs of all the right participants. My confidence was boosted through her genuine interest and understanding in what I have been doing.

Jill Richards

Please pass on my thanks to Camilla for the all absorbing webinar… I have just gone through it again here in my studio and I have found it incredibly interesting as it takes my sketching possibilities to a whole new level!

Trish B

Camilla was inspirational and adjusted the plan to the group perfectly. There was a great atmosphere, and I certainly learnt a lot. I came home with a renewed creative energy!

Clare

Camilla was an interesting and inspiring tutor. The studio and setting were beautiful, and we were made to feel welcome. Despite being a beginner to art, I felt that the course was as appropriate and accessible to me, as it was for those with more experience.

Hilary M

I was completely demoralised and void of creativity but after the course I am full of confidence and enthusiasm for my art.

Inspiring instructors… Ilker Cinarel and Camilla Dixon made for a brilliant week of individual creativity and group discussions that went beyond art into emotions.
