Veronika Neukirch

Drawing tutor for The Vine

Veronika is an artist, tutor and lecturer. She recently completed her MA in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art and previously studied at Central Saint Martins College and UdK Berlin.

Drawing has always played a vital role in her practice while her works assimilate constantly evolving materials and unassuming everyday objects.

Abstract yet bodily, Veronika’s sculptures strive to become quasi-sentient beings by channelling human physiognomies, poses, emotions and attitudes within a playful cartoon logic.

Ruby Bateman

Drawing tutor for County Arms, Wandsworth classes








Ruby is an artist and teacher, currently studying her masters in Print at the Royal College of Art. 

Leading art workshops with Brighton University to budding school children has been a truly rewarding experience for Ruby. She believes in the power art has to educate and inspire and the importance of growing a diverse and inclusive creative community.

Ruby has specialised in print for 5 years, but considers herself to be a mixed media artist, dabbling in sculpture, ceramics, drawing and photography.


As an artist, she seeks to create layered and candid work and explore how an image can translate and transform across different materials and processes.

Connie is an artist living and working in London. She is currently studying for her Masters in Fine Art at City and Guilds of London Art School. 

Since graduating from her first Masters in Modern and Contemporary Literature, Culture and Thought, Connie has been committed to combining both practices through teaching. 


She firmly believes in the remedial practice of art, in any form and regardless of skill or experience. 

As a figurative painter Connie believes in returning to the human form to gain insight into other modes of expression. Her artwork is currently exploring intimacy and absence through "emotional figurations".
