Koby
Art Class on painting techniques, colour and more.
The class will explore and experience a variety of painting techniques, media, and historical approaches to art. Painting is a problem-solving class dealing with form, colour, line, and texture (figurative and abstract). Students will be taught in a workshop format that is based on assignments from the instructor. This class will help them discover their creativity, individuality and unique style. They will begin to work toward building an original body of work that can be used as a portfolio that will include paintings, drawings and mixed media art.

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.

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.
