Art & Creativity: From basic skills to elaborating narratives

I am a multidisciplinary artist and designer with fifteen years of experience. I studied art and architecture at the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris and the Columbia University in New York. I teach painting, drawing, digital image and creativity. This class is ideal for beginners but also intermediate students who want to develop their own style.

For my personal projects, I work in a wide range of mediums, from drawing, painting and printmaking to digital image and 3D Printing. When teaching, I prefer to first focus on free-hand drawing and painting as this allows for greater spontaneity regardless of the student's technical level. We later explore other methods based on the student's individual interests. I like to teach children and adults via mini projects involving art history references and help them develop narratives around their work. I deeply believe in people's creative potential and in my classes will help you channel your own voice.

About Me

I am an artist and designer with a passion for painting, architecture and storytelling. I work on different types of mediums and enjoy fearlessly exploring new techniques. Connecting with people through teaching is a very rewarding experience for me, and I find it very fulfilling to witness my students' skill development. Moreover, teaching is a valuable tool for my own growth, as it allows me to sharpen my understanding of art and design. To cater to the specific needs of each student, I devote myself to preparing custom visual materials, complete with relevant art references and small presentations.


I hope to see you in class!

Eva is very nice teacher, skillful and creative with lessons. Will come back definetly.
Just had my first lesson and it has been an eye-opener. I had so many questions and still she helped me with each of them. I inmediately booked a bunch of lessons with her and will recommend her to whoever is looking to learn, improve or refine their painting skills.
Eva showed me a new way of drawing portraits. She also pointed out the mistakes I make based on portraits I drew and showed me how I could improve them. After her lesson I can move forward again for a while.

ARTS - FROM CLASSICAL DRAWING ALL THROUGH MATERIALITY
The practical insight has been developed throughout enduring studies from 2 different institutional perspectives inspired the urge to convey this to the art enthusiasts of all levels and age. Each age is special within the education similarly all targets pointed from the creative spirits creating thus various anticipations. Those anticipations are the basis of each class. My classes are designed through collaborations when it comes to experimentations or intersected fields and mediums, which is an option and pertinent characteristic of approach. However the one who lasts for foundation and aspires him/her the concept of taking it further to possible academic preparation will grab charcoals, a spoke, the required papers, instal from simple to complex still life compositions and set forth the journey of academic drawing theory. And then, of course, start with colour, of both acrylic and oil medium. Pre-school children, children and teenagers are highly encouraged to experiment with different materials and techniques and preferably through themes - selected by me or the student's likings as well. Needless to say that suchlike classes do not necessarily mean free-time activity, the academic material is intentionally or not(unconsciously) always a present element of my instructive performance. Therefore, the game becomes teaching/learning relation, whilst teaching and learning turn into a recreational joyful moment for all participants. The aforementioned forms of classes are applicable to all ages.

Naomi
Contemporary Painting Course (individual coaching or in a group setting)
Welcome to a new approach to painting, where traditional techniques merge with contemporary artistic expression. I'm Naomi , an experienced visual artist, here to guide you on a journey to discover your own style and painting process. In the world of painting, there's a misconception that technique is something old-fashioned, reserved for realistically replicating the world around us. I invite you to let go of this notion and join me in exploring how contemporary painters, including abstract artists, use technique to create unique and powerful works. My lessons are designed for adults who want to look beyond traditional painting courses. We'll start with exercises that encourage free expression, almost in a childlike manner, without focusing on the end result. This process often reveals unexpected talents and leads to authentic artistic discoveries. I strongly believe in recognizing and developing each student's unique qualities. With me, you'll learn not just the techniques applied by contemporary artists, but also how to use them to find and refine your own artistic voice. There's no such thing as good or bad art; the biggest barriers are often fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Together, we'll overcome these obstacles, with enjoyment in the creative process as our guide. By the end of the course, you'll leave with a painting that reflects the quality of professional work, created with materials that aren't necessarily expensive, but are essential for serious work in today's art world. I'll provide the materials for the first lesson; afterwards, students will be encouraged to purchase their own. Whether you're looking for individual guidance or prefer learning in a group setting, I offer both personal and group lessons. Group lessons have a fixed structure, while individual guidance is completely tailored to your desires and talents. Are you ready to elevate your painting skills to a new level and develop your own style that resonates with the contemporary art world? Join my course and let your creativity flow.

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.
