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.

LIENZOS DEL SER: Clase 1 Comprendiendo la Arteterapia y Elaboración del primer Lienzo de vida.
"Mis clases de arteterapia son un espacio seguro y acogedor donde podrás explorar tu creatividad y descubrir nuevas formas de expresión. Las llamo "Lienzos del ser" y a través de diversas técnicas artísticas, como la pintura, el dibujo, el collage y la escultura, te invitaré a sumergirte en un viaje de autoconocimiento y sanación emocional. En un ambiente relajado y sin juicios, te guiaré para que puedas canalizar tus emociones, pensamientos y experiencias de vida en obras de arte únicas y llenas de significado personal. Cada sesión será una oportunidad para dejar fluir tu imaginación, liberar tensiones y encontrar nuevas perspectivas. No se requiere experiencia previa en arte, ya que el enfoque principal es el proceso creativo y la expresión auténtica. Aprenderemos juntos técnicas básicas, pero lo más importante será el viaje interior que emprenderemos a través del arte. Estas sesiones son ideales para aquellos que buscan una forma terapéutica y enriquecedora de manejar el estrés, superar desafíos emocionales, aumentar la autoestima y descubrir nuevas facetas de sí mismos. Serán un oasis de tranquilidad y crecimiento personal en un mundo ajetreado. Te invito a unirte a este maravilloso viaje de sanación y autodescubrimiento a través del poder transformador del arte. ¡Prepárate para sorprenderte con tus propias creaciones y para conectar con tu ser interior de una manera profunda y reveladora!" Como futuro participante de mis sesiones de trabajo te indico algunas de las informaciones adicionales que debes tener en cuenta, asegúrate de leerlas con calma y ver si resuenan contigo. 1) Disposición para explorar y expresarse: El arteterapia implica abrirse a nuevas experiencias y permitir que las emociones fluyan a través del proceso creativo. Te pido como participante que vengas con una mentalidad abierta y sin miedo a realizar toda clases de actividades, eres un gran artista y no quiero dudad al respecto :D 2) Respeto y confidencialidad: Dado que se trabajará con temas personales y emocionales, es importante establecer un ambiente de respeto mutuo y confidencialidad, y espero mantengas la privacidad de lo compartido durante las sesiones y si deseas que alguien te acompañe me puedes hacer la salvedad antes de comenzar. 3)Compromiso y asistencia regular: El arteterapia es un proceso gradual, por lo que se recomienda un compromiso de asistencia regular a las sesiones para obtener los mejores resultados. Lo ideal es que completes las ocho sesiones iniciales que manejan el aspecto de la Autoconfianza. Pero siempre será tu decisión lo que realmente valga. 4)Materiales básicos: Estas sesiones requieren de elementos básicos como un cuaderno de bocetos, lápices, tijeras, crayones, acuarelas, pinceles, recortes, madejas de hilos de colores, crayones pasteles y todo lo que se te ocurra y permita que tu creatividad fluya. 5) Ropa cómoda: Durante las sesiones es necesario que te desprendas de toda rigidez, es por eso que lo ideal es que tengas la ropa mas cómoda posible y que no tengas el riesgo de daño si surgiera alguna salpicadura. Anímate a ser el mejor artista. El ilustrador de tu nueva forma de ver la vida.
