A practicing artist with a Fine Art degree and a P.G.C.E. in Art and Design, Claire Sandars has nearly twenty years of art teaching experience from running a G.C.S.E. department, teaching A Level Art and Graphic Design, to tutoring on a Foundation course. In the last six years she has taught oil painting and drawing classes to adults at New Brewery Arts in Cirencester. She also tutors for art exams and scholarships and runs workshops. She draws on her knowledge of art theory and history of art to provide activities that both challenge and entertain, and are both classical and contemporary.
She is frequently commissioned for her portraits and exhibits regularly in galleries and at art fairs. Most recently she was involved in an online exhibition based on Lockdown with Gala Fine Arts.
