Oil painting for any level of skill and experience

Oil painting is arguably both the most rewarding and the most forgiving medium. Often misunderstood as too difficult and chemical-reliant, you will be shown how simple it can be to produce the most vibrant and atmospheric images.

This class is applicable to all levels of skill, branching off into more complex ideas about image-making for those who already have experience with the medium. In such instances, we can begin to look at indirect painting approaches including underpainting and glazing.

Extra information

You will need your own set of paints, brushes and a surface to paint on, for which I would be happy to recommend what I think works best.
You are welcome to choose your own subject matter or I will provide images to paint from, depending on what you would prefer.

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.

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.

Creative writing is a way to express your feelings by writing and showing what you feel in a creative. Way of formatting words. Math is the basic way to see what this world got for you adding and subtracting math equations and graphs are all life examples.

ART 🎨Drawing & Painting & Creating & Experimenting
In any subject that we are doing, we do need to be creative. It is the most interesting time to just be present and to be focused on something that makes us happy and peaceful, calm and in the same time so excited about it. I would like to share my skills with anyone who would like to help how to sketch, to draw, to paint, to see and watch things around, to make something, to experiment, work with paper, colours, fabrics, etc. or just think about art or some creative things. This class is for anyone, doesn’t care about age. I’ve been teaching in a private school group of people from 9-40 (more less) y.o. and we all really enjoyed that together. I would be happy to show you how to think creatively. Feel free to write me about anything you would like to know more or you are not sure or if you want to know any more information. Denisa

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 dot-painting technique is an artistic activity recognized for its anti-stress virtues. It is an art accessible to all that allows you to develop your creative side, self-confidence and 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!
