Art Classes – You will learn the technical skills to draw, sketch and paint using different methods and styles.

My course is aimed at giving you the skills you need to draw the world around you.
Everyone has the potential to be able to draw, and draw well. I will teach you the art of observation.

The course sets out basic skills such as seeing things in simple geometric shapes, composing your picture, measuring systems, viewpoints and perspective, shading and creating a three-dimensional illusion, and the proportions of the human figure.

During the course you will also learn to paint. Watercolour, oil or acrylic paints all have their own characteristics and I will show you how use them to their full potential. You will learn how colours are correlated and how they compliment or contrast with each other.

As well as learning the technical skills, you will discover how it all relates to the great artists and art movements of history.

I teach at all levels and ages, whether you are just beginning or have been drawing for years and want to improve their skills or technique, all are welcome.

Jaume
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.

Creation of animated characters, storytelling and Illustration
Would you like to be able to illustrate the worlds and stories you imagine? Do you want to learn how to create characters for a video game, animation, children's story, comic or in any format? Or would you like to be able to draw your favorite characters? If you have those concerns, I would love to help you. I like to focus the classes in such a way that the current drawing level of the student is not what is important. The room for improvement will always evolve. I like to take my classes towards character design, towards general things like the psychology of color and shapes, since they are assimilable and highly useful concepts, independent of the level of drawing. For this reason, my classes are aimed at all ages and drawing levels. I also try to focus them on the preferences and tastes of each student, showing them that everything they like, they like for a reason, that nothing is left to chance and that they can also understand how to make their drawings reflect what they want to convey. Even to create your portfolios or visual information for your own project or story. I give private classes with students from different parts of the world, so many of my classes I have been able to do in both English and French. I studied 2D animation in France, and thanks to this training, my work has been nourished by dynamism, storytelling, expressiveness, typical of this medium, as well as the sensitivity for color and shapes that I usually use to infuse a unique style both to my original designs as well as my fanarts.
