About Me

Hi,
I'm Petra, a 26 years old artist from Indonesia who lives in Geneva, Switzerland. I grew up in Ambon in the Moluccas, in an Artist Community where we use to organize Street Art and Visual Poetry exhibitions almost every two months. Give me a pencil, I will sketch a delicate miniature. Give me sprays or colors, I will make your walls come alive by filling them with deep forests and colorful birds.

Beside this, I teach my native Indonesian language, in a fun and artistic way, by focusing on communication without forgetting the form (in both colloquial and standard languages).

I can teach in both Indonesian and English languages (and also in basic French), whether at my own place, at yours or on line. Just contact me so we can start work together.

Petra

Super cours !! Hâte de continuer !
Je prends des cours d’indonésien avec Petra depuis deux mois et elle m’a fait progresser rapidement. Toujours souriante, à l’heure, elle prend le temps de bien expliquer les choses et la méthode d'apprentissage qu’elle propose est vraiment efficace. I have been taking Indonesian lessons with Petra for two months and she has helped me to improve quickly. Always smiling, on time, she takes the time to explain things well and the learning method she offers is really effective. Easily 5 stars :)

Hello, Being certified of the ECG in the Visual Arts section and having followed the majority of my schooling in this field, I wish to give drawing lessons to those who wish to improve in this field. I offer courses of all kinds, according to the desires and the level of each one. I can teach you the techniques of sketching, observation and reporting in 2D and 3D, notions of perspectives, light and shadow, proportions like those of the human body, etc. I want to give my lessons in a feeling of sharing knowledge acquired during my studies, moving away as far as possible from a school atmosphere.

Drawing and sketching for Arts and Design subjects
Being able to draw successfully and in detail is an important part of any design course. I aim to help you improve your drawing skills but also helping you develop a specific style that fits the subject you want to focus on. I can also help you expand your drawing skills outside your comfort zone. This will hopefully help you learn to overcome any obstacles or issues you may come across in the future. If you are in GCSEs or A-level I can also help you get higher grades or any achieve any goals you have. I will focus on free hand drawing however I can help in painting, modeling and graphic design if you would like.

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.
