Hello! I’m Ali Hodgkinson Fogg, a figurative artist living and working in Folkestone. You can see some of my work here. I have been teaching art to children and adults in this beautiful seaside town since 2015.
Whatever their age, I share with my students the technical skills that are the bedrock of art practice – perspective, light and shadow, colour mixing, paint handling – while encouraging them to embrace their own way of seeing. After all, it is uniqueness that takes art from good to great.
I studied Art History at the University of London; drawing, painting and printmaking at the Royal Drawing School in Shoreditch; and Portraiture at the Heatherley School of Fine Art in Chelsea. I have a PGCE from the University of Greenwich and have worked in a wide variety of educational settings abroad and at home, including Kensington and Chelsea College where I was a Course Director.
I am DBS checked, and have public liability insurance.
