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.

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.

Digital and Traditional Art Lessons for Children and Young Adults
The want and need to teach digital medium is there, but is it truly important to teach? Will digital art take the place of traditional art making? Studies suggest the use of digital tools in art education increases artistic development and creativity Why Traditional Art Matters? Digital art requires no less skill than traditional art making, but it does require a different mode of thinking. Yes, a digital device will have the ability to make a stroke look and layer like watercolour or give the texture of drawing with charcoal. However, when one learns traditional art techniques, they gain a deeper understanding of the materials and what they can do. Come and Discover this with me. I am an artist that works in digital and traditional illustrations. You can enjoy with me the world of the line, shapes, colours and even stories using different kind of techniques such as pencil, ink, markers, watercolour and colours. We can also use in the digital world Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator. clip studio, paint, medibang paint and Firealpaca.

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.

Sophie
Painting/drawing/sketching for children and young people
I've been painting since I was 9 years old. I've learned a lot myself, but I've also learned a lot from other art teachers and I want to know what I've collected and now pass it on to others. I would start very slowly with something like: Color theory, anatomy, I would also first let things run free A little later you get character tasks and other important topics like: Perspective, realistic drawings, watercolor and other media (I mainly paint with pencils, ballpoint pens, acrylic paints and occasionally watercolours) But sometimes with a Wacom tablet.
