“My art lessons with Julia at London Portfolio have been a great help and a fantastic new experience. In a small amount of time, I have learnt so much about new techniques, such as still life drawing and fashion design and creation. A really important aspect is that Julia listens to her students and allows them to develop their own styles and be original by themselves. Another important detail for me was that I was never underestimated because I was the youngest, but neither was I spoon-fed as she critiqued my work honestly. The working atmosphere is great. The students that I’ve met at London Portfolio are full of ideas and are very creative individuals. The staff in London Portfolio are also very welcoming and helpful, going above and beyond to help their students, even outside of working hours when a student has a school or university deadline. A wonderful and worthwhile place to be!”

My personal experience at LAP was life changing!

Julia Dennis’ ability to connect with students and her talent at teaching are both truly superior. She has a great capacity to engage with the students and stretch their imagination by exploring unique art techniques.

Her excellent written and verbal communication skills helped me not only to gain an individual point of view and express myself, but also were the key to understand not only what my designs were about, but what I am all about as an individual.

I had outstanding individual tuition and the skills I was directed to at my 1 to 1s not only helped me to gain confidence with my illustrations, but also motivated me to a great extent to push myself further. (I would have never thought about exhibiting my fashion illustrations if it weren’t for the confidence and skills I gained at LAP).

Julia gives true motivation and inspiration not only as a teacher but also as an artist. She has helped me to organise my work, develop my skills, believe in my ideas, and gain an identity and a differentiation in the competitive world of fashion and art. Thanks to her encouraging help and knowledge, I can proudly say I have not only found what I like to do most, but I have also found myself.

“I’m currently an undergraduate student studying Architecture. After failing my first year I began to attend one-to-one tutorials at London Art Portfolio. After attending tutorials for a year I ended happily with a first and now moving onto second year!

Julia was of great help in finding an ideal tutor for me and organising the tutorials. She also recommended me to have the two hour tutorials which has benefited me greatly. Julia also made sure that my portfolio was seen beforehand, so the tutor knew exactly what I had to improve on and to have an understanding of what the Architectural course’s style was like at my university.

After every tutorial, I would have a structured list of what I had to complete for my portfolio. This helped me a lot, so I knew exactly what I had to do. In the tutorials I learnt new skills and techniques which generally wouldn’t be taught at university.

I like the fact my tutor paid attention to detail such as font size, type of font, a portfolio layout, paper type etc, because this shows the amount of effort they input by commenting on the smallest things.”
