The World Of Aaron Pilgrims Arts
I was good at art at a young age, and luckily my primary school class teacher was an artist called Beryle Harrison.  She always encouraged me to draw.  At secondary school my art teacher called Miss Van Rhymesdyke helped me to gain an ‘O’ Level in art.  Upon leaving school I didn’t draw or paint much for nine years.

I then had some art therapy and I could see a similarity between my drawing style and that of Vincent van Gogh.  As a result I regained my passion for art. 

I then became a good friend with a neighbour, her name was Jan and she was an art teacher at the prestigious Goldsmiths University.  Jan gave me good critic and we had friendly chats about art.

I then studied at Morely College in Westminster Bridge Road.  I was lucky to study there under Doughlas Druce.  Doughlas was in his senior years and had been taught as a young boy by an elderly pre-Raphaelite artist.  He as a result was passing on Victorian techniques to his students.  Next at Morely College, I studied Dynamic Art under Michelle Baharier, & then a life class under Denzil Forrester.

I then found out about Cooltan Arts.  They are an arts charity in South London.  At Cooltan Arts I have studied under some great art tutors learning a great deal.  In particular at Cooltan Arts I studied under the artist Rossen Daskalov.  He kindly taught me many Old Master painting, printing and sculpture techniques.  I have created a lot of art work at Cooltan Arts and have been in many exhibitions though them.

I then met the great artist Leo Stevenson at his studio open day.  He kindly answered many questions about how he works & I learned a great deal about the tricks of the trade.

For the last two years I've have been part of the CoolTan Arts poetry group.  I have read my poetry with the backing classical music of the Waterloo Sinfonia, and also at Shakespear's The Globe Theatre.

Recently, I have been writing a book called, 'Stories of art material history' & it will hopefully be published in January 2015 as an e-book.  All the money raised from this book is going to the charity Cooltan Arts.
