Finding a Creative Path. Discover your visual arts level. Online or in person - available internationally
Taught by RCA graduate and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. This class is an informal assessment of your visual arts level. It is available online internationally and in person within 25 miles of BH12 in the UK.* The purpose of this class is to discover what visual arts level you are. This information can be used so I can create bespoke classes for you, you may be wanting a second opinion or you may want advice on what creative path to follow, whether that is continuing to work with me or for further education, scholarships or competition applications. You are welcome to book to support your education, for leisure or simply so I can help you fulfil a creative dream. I also have a lot of experience helping clients overcome creative blocks and developing wellbeing practices for creatives. I am here to support you, so however you wish to use this class and its results is your choice. We will discuss your passions and your goals. You will be asked to prepare a selection of the work you have made previously to show me. This should demonstrate the range of media you enjoy working with, the subjects you love and/or the goal you currently have. Eg. If you would like to improve your painting, make sure you include recent examples of your painting. If you do not have anything, please do not worry we can create some together. In this class I will ask you some questions and I will ask you to draw for me so I can assess your drawing ability and look at how you use your tools. By asking you to draw for me, I am assessing many things that are relevant for all methods of visual arts so please do not worry if drawing is not a strength of yours. If you have particular goals we will explore this also. I will explain more as we work together. I can provide a paragraph of written tutorial feedback on what we discover together in this class so you can use this as reference moving forwards (this is optional). I look forward to working with you and learning more about your art and your goals. *If your location is more than 5 miles from BH12 then there will be an additional fee for my time travelling for you. This is charged at half the hourly teaching rate pro rata.

CINEMA, ACTING, IMPROVISATION WORKSHOPS - - -
These sessions allow the development of skills and knowledge of the trade, with the game facing the camera, familiarization with the audiovisual environment and the camera tool, in the art of acting. Your inventiveness and your uniqueness being at the center of your training, it is a question of dwelling on the objective criteria, such as the voice, the use of the body, the relationship with the partner, the capacity to occupy the space. But it is also the singularity and the commitment that are decisive. The objective of this training is to be able to: - Analyze and dissect a text - Create, develop and embody a character - Understand the artistic and technical writings of a film or a play - Create, cultivate and develop one's artistic identity and singularity (...) Through simulations and role-playing, the association between theory and practice makes it possible to achieve its objectives. PLACES : - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions, for which you have asked me, also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). Indeed, they have the advantage of face-to-face sessions (ex: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (ex: the entire session transcribed in writing on the chat). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. - As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round. THE TRAINER From a Grande Ecole post-preparatory class in France & Ivy League University in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 14 years in the field, in international establishments, intervening in forums and conferences.

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.
