Spike Wademan

Spikes paints in oils epic pictures of boats and planes for which he is well known both here in New Zealand, United states and more recently Canada. He has been an illustrator for books and advertising for almost 50 years and brings a very different approach to teaching Art. Spike teaches both adults and children to 'see' and therefore 'draw' what they see in a realistic way. Students can use these skills to tell stories and express what is in their imagination.
