Hector Garay-Airaghi

What subjects do you teach?

I teach illustration and drawing courses, including 60PLUS Saturday Art Clubs.

How many years have you been teaching?

I have been teaching at Banbury for the last five years now. I’ve enjoyed every lesson in both of the courses I’ve taught, including adult learners and full-time students on our Level 3 Art and Design courses.

What do you enjoy about teaching adults?

There is nothing more rewarding than helping adult learners to achieve their goals. Supporting them in taking control of their own learning and to guide them throughout their journey in the search of that “wow” moment.

What got you into art?

My educational background, including a BA in Art and Design and a MA in Visual Communications. Besides, I’m a freelance Graphic Designer with an endless need to communicate with images.

Why should someone join your classes?

My lessons are simply the most welcoming and relaxed atmosphere for you to thrive and get creative. We always try to learn from our “happy accidents” as I don’t believe in “wrong”. My lessons are 100% practice based and my students always discover something new to take with them.
