Creative mentoring & coaching for artists who want to stand out (ENG/ PORT)

Creative mentoring for artists who wants to make a difference and stand out from the crowd!

I have experience mentoring young people and people changing into an arts career. I also help artists from all stages of their careers successfully applying for grants.

Let's embark together on this journey! Mentoring and coaching sessions include:
- Find your Voice as an Artist
- Writing About Your Art Practice
- Developing Your Critical Thinking
- Applying for Grants
- Portfolio preparation
- Spotting your challenges
- Resilience for Creatives
- Or just tailored to you needs.

Please note that the 30min session is ONLY to talk through your concerns and how you'd like to work together in the next sessions.

After the first session, we agree what the goals are for you and the number of sessions. I recommend a minimum of five session as it helps establishing trust, time to go through any challenges and for a positive transformational change.

Please prepare for the first session: think of what's holding you back, challenges you're facing. But no need to worry much: it will also be an opportunity for me to learn more about your work and career.

About Me

Multi-disiplinary artist and educator passionate about teaching that is engaging and fun! After all, that's how we learn, isn't it?

I am an empathetic and caring teacher who listens to the student needs and I use a range of strategies, including participation, poetry, games and practical ways to break down themes, making arts accessible to everyone.

Inspired by the power that art has to connect people, I teach, curate and facilitate arts workshops for community groups, care homes and social projects. Participants not only learn, but are also encouraged to exchange skills.

I've also created a methodology to run participatory tours through creativity that I customize for these groups in galleries and museums in London, as well as for individuals and small groups upon request.

Want to learn more about modern and contemporary arts in a creative way? This class is thought by who makes arts, which adds a fresh and new perspective to learning. I am a very empathic and patient teacher and my lessons are lesson are instructive and enjoyable at the same time. The focus is to learn about artists and arts movements by practice, through creative and engaging visits to museums and galleries that will help you remember what you’re learning. If you never studied arts before, don't worry, this practical classes will demystify arts for you. If you have studied art history before and want to deepen your knowledge and learn more specific content, this is a great opportunity. I am happy to tailor classes to each student's abilities, interests and needs.
Watercolour made easy is for everyone who wants to learn from sketch or who has experience and want to develop your skills further. I'm an experienced and award winning artist, passionated about watercolour. Here, I'm combining both my passions to share it with you! In this class, you'll learn how to use the brush to draw beautiful flowers, plants and (self-)portraits, from 'wet on dry' to 'wet on wet' techniques. The later is a technique that uses wet paint against wet paint or wet paper to create beautiful bleeds and blooms, allowing the watercolour paint to spread and blend. The results can be astonishing! FOR ALL LEVELS!
Art can be therapeutic: it releases stress, relax and improve wellbeing. Would you like to develop or learn new art skills and/ or simply to book time off to yourself? In this relaxing classes, there is no right or wrong. The most important is to enjoy your time creating and learning about arts. You can learn about artists and arts movements by practice, with no pressure, in a creative and fun environment. If you never studied arts before, don't worry, this practical classes will demystify arts for you. If you have studied arts before and want to see things outside of the box, learn curiosities about artists and arts movements, then this class is also for you! I am happy to tailor classes to each student's interests, abilities and needs. It can be either individually or for groups (in this case, please contact me before booking).

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.
