Who is the tutor?
About the Tutor: Gail Anselmi
Trained at both Medway College of Art and Design and Campbell College of Art, where she completed a BA ( Hons) Degree in the History of Drawing and Print making. She has exhibited both locally and in London and is currently adding the finishing touches to a Landscape exhibition executed in a range of mediums.
As well as practising as a professional artist, she has taught here and in Spain, demonstrating and explaining how various art related mediums can be used both in a contemporary capacity and historical one. She ran an art business for eleven years, but now focuses mainly on teaching/ demonstration as well as finding the inspiration to complete her own work. Drawing on her knowledge of ancient paint preparation and museum training, she is able to explain the artists approach, relative to their place in history.
She believes that art should be enjoyable and accessible to all and passionately promotes the arts, attempting to ensure that learning at any level is informative and fun.
