I base my classes on a hands on learning approach, keeping in mind that the processes of artistic materials are learned by studio making. I enjoy teaching charcoal, ink and oil pastel drawing on paper, drawing from observation, portraiture, abstraction, experimental process drawing. I am also inclined towards working with unusual materials, particularly phosphorescent or luminscent pigments that glow under ultraviolet light.
I am an Adelaide Central School of Art Honours Degree Graduate (2015). I have been the recipient of multiple grants and have undertaken multiple group, solo, and collaborative exhibitions.
I would like to develop a teaching base in order to increase my ability to pass on the experiences I have gained and thus enrich the lives of others.
I love working with the innate interests of an individual in a collaborative manner and drawing out their strengths and helping to spark their interest in art making.
I am happy to train students at any level of artistic skill.
I would like to be informed one week in advance of cancellations.

Francois is a talented artist and a very friendly, honest, respectful, and caring teacher. As a teacher, above all, he is very kind, patient, and considerate, with a positive and uplifting attitude. Children are drawn to him and feel comfortable with him. He is also respectful of people's differences and sensitive to different needs and learning styles and always seems to be able to come up with strategies and solutions very easily.
