Learn How To Write & Publish Your Own Children’s Book

This class is for all aspiring authors who would love to see their own book in print and to develop a passion for creative writing. I will take each student through the whole creative process of producing a book from the initial brainstorming of ideas, to storyboarding, writing, editing, illustration (if desired) and publication.

As a prolific children’s author and illustrator, I specialise in empowering others to write and celebrate their creative talents through the books they produce. I have many years experience in publishing books for other people. This class can be tailored to both children and adults.

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.

Discussion of a Book, a Short-Story, a Poem, or a Movie.
In this class, we analyse and evaluate works of narrative art together. This is how it works: Before each meeting we agree on a short-story or a poem to read (or listen to), or a movie to watch in preparation for the session. If it's a book, it has to be one which we've both read in the past. We can easily determine our mutual reads through apps like Goodreads or Library Thing. The aim of this course is to exercise your capacity for critical and evaluative thinking. By the end of this course, you should be able to produce (in speech or in writing) a coherent and methodical review of a book of fiction, poetry, or a film.

Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.

General English Class, Public Speaking and Creative Writing
I aim to bring an interactive, creative, and imaginative environment for children and adult students to ensure that their interest in the language grows. My one to one classes are tailored for each individual student with regard to their personality. This helps them to be more interested in the teaching material and the class in general. . After my classes, my students have gained much confidence in expressing themselves in English, whether it comes to their writing or oral abilities. I have experience with preparing lesson plans, class tests (spelling tests, quizzes etc.) as well as providing feedback to the parents. I also have plenty of personal experience with public speaking which enables me to help my students better with being able to speak with more confidence
