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.

Illustrator offers art classes / drawing / painting
I offer drawing / painting classes for all levels. Possibility of working different techniques (oil painting, illustration crayons, pastels, rotring frames, watercolors, acrylics, paper mache, wire sculpture and tissue paper etc ...). I adapt to the students' favorite style and offer help to find one's own style, a good acquisition of techniques, a development of creativity, a self-expression, and of course good moments in joy and good humor. I have a preference to teach children, teenagers and students of my age, I admit to not being very comfortable with adults, but this is always possible. Since I'm studying psychology, I'm also trying to use the medium of drawing to find what my students need to open up and flourish, art as therapy. In general, the students I had felt very comfortable with me, as if they were at home, and I hope to be able to bring my students to deepen their creativity but also to help them understand what they love and need.

Learn the basics of acrylic painting and let's build a passion.
Art and craft always help us in developing patience, focus and a peace of mind. Staying in the city of Paris for the past few years, I developed an interest and passion for learning and sharing the skill of painting. The hobby can be started by any person irrespective of their age. Let it be a student of 10 years, a housewife of 35 or a senior citizen of 70 years! In the past five years, after I started painting in 2017, I could motivate several of my friends and family to pursue this hobby without any prior training or knowledge. The activity makes us calm, helps us in focussing more on the work and in fact it can be an additional source of income after learning the basic skills. In midst of the pandemic and the things happening around, this hobby can thus make us develop a different attitude towards life. Let's learn the basics of acrylic painting.

Archicad Technical Drawing Run - 2D 3D for Students
The word CAD in English means Computer-Aided Design, "Computer Drawing Assistance". ArchiCAD is a specific program for 2D and 3D architectural design. We will start with simple 2D drawing tools, arranging drawing sheets for printing (layout), connection and printer settings (sheet size) to get the document or drawing. The second step will be to discover how Archicad 3D drawing can be easy.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.

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.
