Fine and Decorative Arts available for everyone! Learn how to express yourself in a creative way and understand the meaning behind your art.

Throughout my four years of study in the “Dimitrie Paciurea” Art High School in Bucharest, I was able to study art in depth and in its various manifestations, and in doing so I was able to see the glimpses of the subconscious mind set as reflected in art.

My teaching method is based on communication and experience. By that I mean that, I approach my students with curiosity, promoting their researching abilities. Moreover, I deeply analyse and question the meanings of their chosen topics of inspiration, in order to offer a better understanding of the symbolic meaning behind their though process.

Likewise, I promote freedom of choice in their subjects with guidance throughout each project, and encourage originality and ingenuity. Thus allowing them to understand themselves on another level.
Subsequently, due to my experience in working with disabled children I have understood that the subconscious is present in any creative project hence why if I suspect that the child is going through some hard times I will immediately offer feedback to their parents.

Altogether, my final goal is to understand the hidden meaning of the hints left by the subconscious, through our day to day life, and inspire others to adventure in this journey

Extra information

Some of the materials will be provided by me (such as easels, supports, snacks and beverages, only when teaching occurs at my place) and the rest of the materials will be acquired together after the first lesson.

About Me

My capstone project included three paintings on canvas that pondered on the human psychological conditions and how they transform the actors’ lives. In addition, I studied and practiced painting outside of school from a very young age, including participating in numerous art exhibitions, which brought me even closer to see the reflections of the mind through the artistic process. These experiences and exposures have in turn fed my curiosity, and so I decided to study psychology alongside my art studies. Hence why I am currently undergoing preparations in order to start my undergraduate course in September.

Furthermore, I have been involved in numerous volunteer opportunities to help children with special needs. I was a volunteer with the Healthy Family Association-Small Ecologist Foundation (“Asociatia Familie Sanatoasa”) for 4 years, where I worked with children with special needs and their parents. Most importantly, I gained patience, compassion and an observant spirit, which will serve me well in a professional setting.

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.

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 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,...
