Graduated from INRACI and Master in writing at ULB, I will be happy to share my teaching and my experiences with you.
My method is to trade as much as possible. I want to try to better understand your point of view or your way of conceiving your project. I will recommend movies to watch to arouse your curiosity. I will also give you a certain analytical basis, to better identify the devices and methods to achieve them. The art of cinema is often to play with codes, for that you must first master them. I will try to teach you to take a step back from your own project and to accept an outside opinion. Regarding video editing, my method is to take examples of short films / audiovisual projects, and put yourself into practice. Editing certainly needs a little theory, but it can be learned above all by practicing. So I will teach you certain methods and certain precepts to have to master. I will mainly follow your project (s).

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.
