Jaume
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.

Cours d'histoire de l'art, toutes périodes et toutes niveau
D'après ma licence en histoire de l'art obtenu en Italie en 2017 j'ai pu approfondir toutes les périodes artistiques, pour ce qui concerne l'art de l'Europe et des Etas Unis. Ma spécialisation est l'art de la renaissance italienne mais je suis compétente sur toutes autres périodes. Je pourrai préparer aussi des fiches avec les tableaux pour mes cours.

Kenza
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 dot-painting technique is an artistic activity recognized for its anti-stress virtues. It is an art accessible to all that allows you to develop your creative side, self-confidence and 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!
