Figurative and Still Life Drawing, Observation and Memory

Drawing as the basic visual language is one of the most powerful ways to connect what you see and record through your body. This class is suitable for people who are applying for Bachelor and Master programs in Art.

We will start with still life drawing and continue our observations with the human figure. Initially, I would suggest pencils, pastels, crayons, and charcoals to make the drawings on paper. After getting familiar with the human figure, I will ask you to alter the medium; i.e., the marker and the surface, to explore the visual language of the materials.

Moving from observation to the materiality of our drawings, I will ask to draw and write from memory. This part of the class would enable us, to collect images and make narratives from our source materials that we have observed, recorded, and recalled.

A pencil and bunch of papers bigger than A4 are sufficient.

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.

Graduated from a digital arts school, I give digital drawing lessons
I have a bachelor's degree in digital arts, obtained at Saint Luc in 2016. During my studies I did live modeling, had courses in color, 2D animation, perspectives and character design. I mainly draw with a graphics tablet. I explore different styles but particularly focus on character drawing. It is this flexibility that I wish to transmit during my lessons. Learn to look at an image, understand the way the artist composes it, then learn to reproduce a style. Not copying, but really understanding and being able to reuse this style for original creations.
