The first lesson was really good. Serious and fun at the same time. Very interesting exercises . I am looking forward to the second lesson!
The experience with Xingying was one of consummate professionalism, acute attention to detail, and warm efficiency of time. I was not only impressed but feel extremely lucky and privileged to continue my son’s lessons with her. - She answered all questions and concerns with ease - She provided a detailed list of all the tools needed for a successful lesson - She provided a good space for learning - My son expressed great enthusiasm and excitement for continued learning with her I most of all appreciate that her presence brought out a commitment in my son to desire his learning. I recommend Xingying’s services with the the utmost confidence and faith.
The classes with Xingying are very fun! She places focus on the parts the are important to you and explains all the questions with care and patience. An awesome teacher and an amazing person! :)

I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.

Creative painting and watercolor technique workshop for all levels
Within this class you will be able to immerse yourself in one of the most appreciated and captivating artistic expressions for artists: the use of watercolor. The versatility and delicacy of its results are outstanding reasons that attract participants. By applying layers of transparent colors, achieved through mixing pigments with water that interacts with the paper, students have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of effects, whether soft, ethereal, vibrant or intense. The workshop addresses a wide range of artistic topics, from the creation of landscapes and portraits to the representation of objects and nature. The unique ability of watercolor to highlight luminosity and create fluid images is highlighted. In addition, the technique offers the possibility of incorporating abundant details through the use of various brushes, allowing participants to explore their creativity. At the same time, the workshop encourages artistic freedom by being open to the artist's spontaneity, giving them the space to creatively release their imagination through the brush.

IT's time to learn some Art through Drawing and Painting
Though lots of artists would like to believe their work defies categorisation, in reality we tend to discuss art based on the medium used. Well-known categories of artwork include drawing, painting, sculpture and photography, but today all kinds of novel forms can be found both inside and outside of galleries. Drawing and painting are the oldest of the visual arts, so they have lots of specific vocabulary of their own. The art world is a strange place, but the surest way to fit in – apart from wearing all-black outfits and rings as big as your hands – is to practice speaking like the arty types hanging around galleries. You are the tomorrow’s opening! Come let's learn the new form of art in a new way.

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.

Graduated from a digital arts school, I give digital drawing lessons
I have a bachelor's degree in digital arts, obtained at Saint Luc in 2016. During my studies I did live modeling, had courses in color, 2D animation, perspectives and character design. I mainly draw with a graphics tablet. I explore different styles but particularly focus on character drawing. It is this flexibility that I wish to transmit during my lessons. Learn to look at an image, understand the way the artist composes it, then learn to reproduce a style. Not copying, but really understanding and being able to reuse this style for original creations.
