You’ll automatically become a group member if you choose to. And if you’ve ever been tutored by me, I warmly invite you to reconnect. Join the Creative Momentum community group - send me an email with your phone number and a link to your internet presence.

About your tutor

Liane van der Hoven art and design tutor

I am internationally certified in best-practice Blended Online Learning. I achieved my BA in Fine Art (Ed) and received the Maggie Laubser scholarship from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.

I have taught art and design at private and public schools for many years. I have also taught at tertiary level and understand what is expected of students and their admission portfolios.

Both my Honours and Master’s degrees in Cultural History were awarded cum laude, thanks to an excellent command of academic English and well-honed academic skills, which I transfer to my students.

I put no limitation on the level of excellence that can or must be achieved. Each journey I accompany is unique and precious... My challenge to you is simply to be the very best version of yourself... whatever that may look like. You’ll benefit from my study of Neurodiversity and various educational systems and approaches, including Waldorf.

As artist, designer and entrepreneur, I speak from a place of personal experience. I live what I teach.

How can I help you become the best you can be?

I'll suggest a results-focussed, individualised coaching plan, after a discussion with you. Coaching plans vary from ongoing, weekly, 1-hour sessions to intense, back-to-back sessions in the face of looming deadlines.

Standard

$60 / hour

One-hour lesson during which the previous week's creative or academic results (and syllabus requirements and peer levels if applicable) are unpacked, as well as the next week's challenges and tasks made clear.

Intensive

$70 / hour

We will discuss your deadlines, your aims and portfolio. I will then understand the challenge at hand. I’ll plan and suggest a tailor-made schedule for you for interaction and self-work, accompanied by intensive guidance to achieve your unique goals.
