Art Class (portfolio development for entering Art School and applying for funding) // (children's workshops)

I am a practicing artist with an BA and MA in Fine Arts by L'Ecole Superieure des Arts Decoratifs and by the Sandberg Instituut.

My course focuses on giving the students the tools and knowledge necessary for applying to Art School or for funding for more specific projects.

I will help you develop a portfolio and guide in the development of the work by analysing with you conceptually and formally. We will engage in a conversation that provides the student with a better understanding of the body of work being produced and presented.

The course structures differently depending on the needs of the student, and can range from exercises in theory, practice, translation, synthesis and experimentation, as well as working on presentation and discourse.

My practice is specific to sculpture, installation, performance, and space design and can provide insight and tools in these mediums very precisely, but of course we will not be restricted to these as a pluridisciplinary artist. I have a large studio near Oosterpark with many tools and space for creation and experimentation if necessary. Available in the studio: ceramic tools and kiln, metal tools, wood tools, mold making and casting, and many other.

The course proposes a methodology from concept, writing, and experimentation, to execution, collaboration and presentation, necessary for a contemporary artist in todays art ecosystem. We will work with context as well: visiting works, museums, galleries and spaces run for and by artists in todays contemporary environment.

I have successful experience with the application system for project funding and juried interviews that we can focus on depending on the needs of the student.

I conduct very different classes for children as well, in which we focus on material expression and the exploration of formal grammars, learning techniques through intuitive processes and translating the children's narratives and energy into material gestures.

Contact me for a portfolio of workshops I've conducted, successful applications and of personal work. Flexible schedule and adaptable courses. I am a native speaker of English, French and Spanish and can conduct classes in any of these languages.

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.

Book design for passionate designers, conception flow
/ During structured lessons and amusing exercises, students will learn all about  paper sizes and formats, how to design in good proportions, positioning of the text, integration of illustration and photography, use and choice of suitable typography...  / Lessons also include learning how to get visible beyond other designers; what is the "moodboard" and how to create one; what is to be avoided while designing, how to make design appealing and visible to large audience. / We work in good vibes - designing is a LOT of work, but also a BIG fun!

This June I will be representing the Republic of Ireland at the Belgrade - Adriatic Biennale hosted by the National Museum of Serbia, The City Art Gallery in Montenegro and the Belgrade Cultural Association. 17 YEARS EXPERIENCE TEACHING ART AND DESIGN ACROSS LEVEL 4 - including primary, secondary, GCSE, A Level, Foundation, Undergrad, Post Graduate and Continuing Education.

Visual and Media Art / Plastic Art / Conceptual / classical / website / portfolio
As a whole, the courses include a vast repertory which touches the drawing, painting, design and lexicon of colors (chromatic circle; monochrome; monochrome; tutorial of the visual arts language, etc), linocut, cyanotype, photography, basic photoshop course, performance tutoring, etc. Among others, basic research techniques to design supports for the chosen mediums such as how to stretch your own canvas on a false frame or even the design of homemade paper and more. A conceptual approach is very present, but mixes with the classic course, because you obviously have to start somewhere. These art courses / workshops are more anchored in the technique, but if there is a desire to deepen your knowledge in terms of art history, among others, to better understand the trends of art or artists who have influenced a technique for example there will always be opportunities on demand. For the more advanced, it will also be possible to do tutoring on how to proceed with a research method for the evolution of his art, place of dissemination, creation of a website for their portfolio and how to design it. * It will be possible, in the eventuality, to go outside during photography, drawing or other related courses. Depending on the development or the desire of the apprentice, we could go to a museum, gallery or other activity that will support the learning (provide an additional amount to cover the costs of the activity if necessary ). See you above all and see you soon! :) _______________________________________________________ As a whole, the courses include a vast repertoire that touches the drawing, painting, design and lexicon of colors (chromatic circle; monochrome; camaieu; tutoring of the plastic language, etc.), linocut, cyanotype, photography, basic course of photoshop , Performance tutoring, etc. Among other things, basic techniques for designing media for selected mediums such as how to stretch your own canvas on false frame or home-made paper design and more.

If you have a beautiful garden or live in a countryside close to nature, you can start your drawing with exercises using simple plants.The shapes that can be found in the natural environment are variable and studying them is a true pleasure. Take a look at these drawings below. These drawings by Henri Matisse were inspired by ordinary trees and plants.

Basic Colour Theory for Painting/Drawing - an essential to all art
Colour is the basis of all painting. It creates a basis for all colour art and is a whole science in itself. In this lesson, we will look at some basic colour theory, painting our own colour wheels and considering how these might help us when painting or drawing. We will apply what we have learnt to look at some famous paintings and see how these favourite artists used the same colour theory as us today.

EPQ TUTORING- ART & ART HISTORY RELATED , open to other subject
The extended project is a very large and complex task without proper guidance and mentoring. I was lucky enough to receive a brilliant mentor when completing my own, and was a big factor in how I achieved the A grade. Through these sessions the student can share with me their ideas for the EPQ, and I can guide them through all aspects of the process from the activity log to the dissertation itself. I welcome all ideas and projects art related as it is my speciality, but I am open to other subjects too!
