Watercolour workshop for adults - The full process

Apart from being one of the oldest forms of self-expressions, drawing and painting is scientifically proven to enhance brain function, raise serotonin levels, relax the nervous system and therefore improve our general well-being. Watercolour painting is particularly therapeutic as we explore the properties of watercolours through mark-making techniques which we can later apply in our more elaborate paintings. Even if you are a complete beginner with a 'can't do' attitude, I will guide you through the process of selecting a subject, doing an initial sketch, mixing colours and applying some of the techniques we explored in the first stages of our class. In 2-3 hours you will have produced some impressive work that you will find rewarding and will encourage you to produce more amazing art pieces. Equipped with this new knowledge and skill you'll feel energised with a positive mindset just as many of my students have done so far.
Booking essential.

About Me

For me a successful workshop is when the student leaves the class feeling uplifted and full of enthusiasm to create more art. My classes are informal and fun. As we are all inspired by different things, I let the student choose the subject which will help him or her to stay motivated and focused throughout the process of painting. I love passing on all the little tips and tricks of my craft that took me decades to master. I have a loose approach to watercolour painting which will guarantee quick and impressive results.

Education

I studied BTec Art & Design in Wimbledon School of Art and then BA (Hons) Illustration in the 90s and early 2000's in London. I also took short courses in textile design and various other crafts throughout the years. I am entirely self-taught in watercolour painting.

Experience / Qualifications

I've been teaching drawing and watercolour painting since 2012. I'm also a professional watercolorist practising this beautiful craft for some 15 years. From time to time I take part in art competitions and have appeared in British art publications. I also organise painting holidays to various locations in the world where I teach plein air sketching and painting.

Dot mandala painting class to learn how to create unique designs on canvas and other media
I suggest an art therapy session to disconnect you from the stress of everyday life; and immerse yourself in meditative art. The technique of dot-painting or point painting is an artistic activity recognized for its anti-stress virtues. It is an art accessible to all that allows you to nurture your creative side, improve self-confidence, and which also helps develop communication and exchanges. Just like during a yoga or meditation practice; we return our attention to the present moment, to what our body and our mind are doing, we observe and feel our sensations at the moment T without analyzes or judgments; we just refocus. You have understood it: it is about eliminating positive thoughts and welcoming new and colorful energies! The choice of colors and patterns allows the mind to refocus and forget the worries of everyday life.

Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.

MENTORING IN ARTS : Discover how to say something through your artistic work.
I am a visual artist born in Barcelona, settled in Belgium since 2017. As an artist I have accumulated experience for the last 25 years. I am graduated with an Academic Bachelor in Fine Arts in the University of Barcelona and graduated as a Master in Visual Arts at Sint Lucas School of Arts in Antwerpen. I am specialised in painting, drawing, experimental films, installations, language, sound and curating. In other words, I am a multidisciplinary artist. I understand the artistic practice as a way to understand ourselves and the situations which surrounds us. In my classes I don't teach how to do Art, but as how to say something through your artistic work. With me you can work independently, with a coach who will challenge you with some assignments and giving feedback to your personal concerns. In addition, you will learn how to work with several mediums, preparing your own material: paintings, canvases, and so on. You will not only receive individual coaching but as encourage you to look other artists or take into account other references connected with your concerns. Finding, discussing and retaking solutions together are the core of my classes.

Marylene
Professional storyboarder gives 2D animation courses, drawing, portfolio, cinema and storyboard / preparation for animation schools
Hello, Let me introduce myself, Marylène, professional storyboarder, graduated in animation cinema. I offer serious drawing lessons adapted to the level of the student, from the beginner to the young professional through the animation student. During the first lesson, we will talk about the student's expectations and set the artistic objectives by defining a personalized program. I would assess the level of the student, his strengths and weaknesses for a tailor-made course, taking into account to nourish his universe and his sensitivities with a background both cultural and technical. I teach both the basics of solid drawing to beginners (perspective, proportion, composition, volume, anatomy, gesture, posing, principles of animation ...) as well as to students / future students in animation cinema, to young professionals who want to specialize in storyboard or who have questions about how to develop a TV pitch. For the storyboard part, my specialty, I will teach the basics of cinematographic language (types of framing, transitions, camera movement ...) and I will follow with basic exercises to be able to make parts of portfolio. Indeed, I can also support the student for the realization of a portfolio / demoreel for animation schools. I could guide him to feed and build his book taking into account the expectations of schools and studios. I travel to Lyon for a travel fee, and also give online lessons via Webcam and screen sharing on Skype. Students will have free follow-up by phone, email, whatapps or facebook as well as personalized feedback on the exercises. My teaching areas: - Academic drawing - Preparation for entry to art schools - Dynamic Posing / Gesture - Storyboard - 2D animation - Pitch TV series - Integration into the professional world (portfolio / demoreel / CV) French and English.

ART 🎨Drawing & Painting & Creating & Experimenting
In any subject that we are doing, we do need to be creative. It is the most interesting time to just be present and to be focused on something that makes us happy and peaceful, calm and in the same time so excited about it. I would like to share my skills with anyone who would like to help how to sketch, to draw, to paint, to see and watch things around, to make something, to experiment, work with paper, colours, fabrics, etc. or just think about art or some creative things. This class is for anyone, doesn’t care about age. I’ve been teaching in a private school group of people from 9-40 (more less) y.o. and we all really enjoyed that together. I would be happy to show you how to think creatively. Feel free to write me about anything you would like to know more or you are not sure or if you want to know any more information. Denisa

Akshay
Painting/Sketching/Watercolour class For Young People
Hello Everyone, I have been graduated with a Master in Fine Art from India, currently enrolled in an M.A in Arts and cultural management. I have knowledge in painting, drawing, and sketching techniques and also the history of art. I have started this watercolor class to show how beautiful this medium can be and how you can explore it in your own way. Watercolour is considered a different technique that many artists don't want to touch sometimes. With my class, you will see how fun it can be to paint with watercolor. Feel free to inquire about any other Art related topics, I will be there to help. If you want to learn a specific technique or medium, or recreation of the artwork we can work on it also.
