Drawing, Painting, and Fine Arts classes for beginners, advanced students, adults, and art admirers

The freedom of creativity is the most attractive way of self expression. However, to achieve the mastery to utilise consciously and productively this freedom, with both joy and confidence, with value and satisfaction, you need to have the 'tools' and attain certain skills to guide, facilitate, and uncover your potential. A grate achievement could not be done without breaking the rules, but to break the rules convincingly and doubtlessly, you first need to learn, acknowledge, and understand their natural laws and traditions.
Therefore, I am inviting to my tutorial classes, where online or in person, on beginner or advanced level, you will meet and learn the basic and most important skills of Drawing and Painting systematically through observation, will practice and experiment to fully master a medium or a technique, will support your practice with Art and Color theory, Perspective, and History of Art, in order to start easily drawing yourself, interpreting a favourite scene or a subject on a paper or canvas, and will create you diverse and appealing collection of artworks with attention, imagination, and excitement.

About Me

During more than 12 years of professional Art education and practice I have explored, analysed, and established values and aesthetics in Art configured by knowledge, taste, criticism, cultural algorithms, social demands, 'trends' influence, gathered together and refined by validations proved to be accurate and defining.
I feel determined to pass my experience on the young generation and people who are committed to 'learn' with the attempt to not only introduce to them the foundations of developing artistic skills to achieve technical proficiency, but also to build confidence and aim highly, without losing the joy and admiration to Art.
Learning the essence and fundamental principles of Drawing and Painting requires extreme patience, discipline, consistency, dedication, and time. In our dynamic modern times, as Art is associated with unprecedented freedom, it is even more challenging to master those skills and apply them in modern means and approaches. Creative process is indeed the most compelling, hypnotising, and liberating 'adventure', but to 'write a word that really means something, you cannot do without knowing A, B, C... from the alphabet'
I am here to help students understand the incredible comprehensiveness of Art, to learn step by step the difficult but intriguing process of Drawing and Painting, and to guide them in utilizing the freedom this knowledge gives to unleash talent and creativity with confidence and vigour.

Kenza
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.

Carlos
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.

Learn how to draw: If you can See, you can Draw :-)
A lot of people think they cannot draw. But before drawing, it is about "seeing". Actually if you can see, you can draw. Not only objects, but portraits, animals, whatever you want. By developing the aptitude of observing the reality using the right part of your brain, you learn how to draw what you really see instead of drawing what you think you already know about this reality. This technique was a revelation as it allowed me to progress quickly when I was young. It's on this base that I will help you to learn another way of looking at things around you and show you some tricks to overcome difficulties as perspective, foreshorten,...

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.

painting and drawings is not only a technique but a way of thinking.

Adeline
Drawing / painting course and introduction to graphic design (photoshop, illustrator - vector drawing)
Dynamic and creative, I am very patient and I want to encourage you in a positive way and focus on the progress you are making and your strengths. After my bachelor's degree in computer graphics, I did a master's degree in communication and performing arts. I then moved to London for a few months where I started by giving French lessons via this platform. I did various internships in audiovisual centers as well as in a fablab (3D printing, laser cutting, vector design, etc.) I have drawn all my life, whether on a course sheet margin, canvas, wall or graphics tablet. During my training in computer graphics, I developed better drawing techniques and I learned to use software such as Photoshop, Illustrator (vector drawing), After Effect (motion design), Premiere Pro (video editing). If you are really new to computers and more basic programs, I am also here to help. In my opinion, it is easier to learn when we talk about things that interest us. This is why I will ask you to share your hobbies and interests so that I can learn about them in order to prepare an attractive and appropriate lesson. The computer / artistic field allows us a great freedom of subject. We can try multiple techniques: whether in drawing, painting or computer graphics.

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.
