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! :)
Very patient and skilled teacher, highly recommend for begginer artists like me.
Awesome teacher and really competent in what she is doing! Can recommend if you want to start learning mandarin-chinese!
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.

Send a message explaining your needs and Xingying will reply soon:
The more detail, the better.
Ex. "Hi, when are you available to meet for a lesson?"

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.

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.

ART 🎨Drawing & Painting & Creating & Experimenting
In any subject that we are doing, we do need to be creative. It is the most interesting time to just be present and to be focused on something that makes us happy and peaceful, calm and in the same time so excited about it. I would like to share my skills with anyone who would like to help how to sketch, to draw, to paint, to see and watch things around, to make something, to experiment, work with paper, colours, fabrics, etc. or just think about art or some creative things. This class is for anyone, doesn’t care about age. I’ve been teaching in a private school group of people from 9-40 (more less) y.o. and we all really enjoyed that together. I would be happy to show you how to think creatively. Feel free to write me about anything you would like to know more or you are not sure or if you want to know any more information. Denisa

Drawing, Painting, and Fine Arts classes for beginners, advanced students, adults, and art admirers
The freedom of creativity is the most attractive way of self expression. However, to achieve the mastery to utilise consciously and productively this freedom, with both joy and confidence, with value and satisfaction, you need to have the 'tools' and attain certain skills to guide, facilitate, and uncover your potential. A grate achievement could not be done without breaking the rules, but to break the rules convincingly and doubtlessly, you first need to learn, acknowledge, and understand their natural laws and traditions. Therefore, I am inviting to my tutorial classes, where online or in person, on beginner or advanced level, you will meet and learn the basic and most important skills of Drawing and Painting systematically through observation, will practice and experiment to fully master a medium or a technique, will support your practice with Art and Color theory, Perspective, and History of Art, in order to start easily drawing yourself, interpreting a favourite scene or a subject on a paper or canvas, and will create you diverse and appealing collection of artworks with attention, imagination, and excitement.

English for adults, Psychology, Education, Global learning
Speaking English fluently and accurately is one of the key components of global communication. So my approach to teaching English is through communication and human relations. Understanding what a person wants and needs is of primary importance. I follow life-long learning path myself and always learn new skills inspiring my students to do the same (according to their preferences and values) Learning English as a foreign language gives a lot of energy and interest in a variety of spheres provoking every person develop and grow throughout their life. So in my classes I use different Student books (depending on your level) together with fiction/non-fiction/films/podcasts and other eats materials depending on your interests, as I strongly believe that learning process is an individual path and each of us has unique points which motivate and bring the best result.
