Distance Delivery Mentor Profile: Billy Wilson
No matter where you live in the world, you can study TLC’s New Zealand Creativity programmes through distance delivery. Distance delivery means you will learn to draw, paint, design and create from the comfort of your own home and receive one-on-one tutoring from one of our mentors, all of whom are practicing artists.
We spoke to Billy Wilson, 2017, 2018 and 2019 Parkin Drawing Prize finalist, and one of our distance delivery mentors.
Your Creativity. Your Place. Your Time.
No matter where you live in New Zealand, you can study Creativity and Art through the Learning Connexion. The flexibility of distance delivery means study can complement your life, rather than disrupt it. Raglan-based artist Ailene Cuthbertson took that option, and hasn't looked back.Posted on 02 Aug 2019 Comments
