MEDIA TRAINING WORKSHOPS (TELEVISION AND RADIO)
How to prepare for a media interview? What means should be used to fight his fear of the camera and improve his image? How to present yourself and your project in front of a camera? How to present yourself and your project to the media? Targeted content according to your project: Verbal and / or gestural communication; Seduction of the lens and / or microphone; Improvisation in front of a microphone and / or a camera; Voice & gaze; Games of one or two cameras; Chronic; Animation; Reportage; Direct radio & TV; Interview; Narration; Speech in all its forms (...) In short, several objectives: ◾ Confront your shyness in front of the microphone / camera. ◾ Understand his speech and his diction. ◾ Taming the media environment (radio / tv). ◾ Familiarize yourself with your image and voice. ◾ Manage your speaking time. Through exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentations, time management, etc.), role plays, interview simulations and familiarization with one's image and voice, the participants move at their own pace in a flexible educational framework. Note that during the videoconference session, all the notes are transcribed in the chat so that you can access them at any time when you wish. Indeed, speaking is a predominantly physical activity, which, while taking care of its image, is based on a body, a voice, a breath, a rhythm (diction) and an emotion (the imagination and the sensations ) reflecting the speaker's involvement in his speech. How to send a clear message? How to make the difference, to make an impression? Knowing how to speak, act and interact in public is almost a necessity today: your public speaking must be effective and efficient with clear, simple and powerful messages. Simple and pragmatic tools will be presented for: generating listening ● making an impression ● fostering confidence ● generating need ● motivating teams by explaining a strategy ● getting messages across within groups ● overcoming shyness by assimilating 3 CRV axes (body-breathing-voice) ● better manage disagreement or conflict. Mastered, the method allows: • improve self-confidence and stress management with the development of the speaker's fluency (verbal-bodily), his public speaking and his sense of repartee and improvisation. • to work on their ease, leadership, charisma, creativity and personal development through scenarios. * improve the characteristics of the spoken voice (timbre, pitches, intention, flow). * get your message across through your image, while gaining improvisation skills and responsiveness. Supplemented by basic exercises (diction, voice, presence, breathing, presentation, time management), role plays, improvisations and simulations. With the key word: pronunciation, diction / articulation, the sense of repartee. Statistically, the progression following these private sessions is quickly noticeable, from 2 sessions. ( study 2020). Trained in Grande Ecole post-preparatory classes & Ivy League university in the United States, specialized and has worked for more than 15 years, in Europe and North America, in the field of communication and public speaking, in renowned international public and private establishments, intervening in forums and conferences, and oriented on pedagogy and careful methodology. - Locations: Geneva - Lausanne - Friborg - Neuchâtel - Montreux - Basel - Sion - Sierre - Morges - Bienne. But currently and until further notice, only by videoconference in accordance with national recommendations on Covid. These sessions also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they have the advantages of live (example: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (example: loss of travel time), with additional advantages (example: of notes on the chat, which can be reread afterwards). In this context, these videoconference sessions for which you have requested me, seem to suit everyone perfectly, take place in a very optimal way and generate a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. Take good care of yourself and yours! PROGRAM À la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Portfolio Preparation and University Counseling for Art and Design University Applications
I am an attentive, dedicated, and lively art teacher with 10 years of experience in portfolio preparation and university counseling. I help students with: • CREATING A WINNING PORTFOLIO: Learn how to create ambitious, interesting works; how to take good photos of artwork; how to edit images with Adobe Photoshop; how to write smart, intellectual texts on your works; how to layout and design a portfolio with Adobe InDesign, typography, which works to include in which order for each portfolio (you should *never* send the same portfolio to all schools! :D). • SCHOOL SEARCH AND UNIVERSITY COUNSELLING: North American / European university recommendations (France, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden,...); finding the right schools for you, finding and applying for scholarships. I also work as an interviewer for my alma mater; as such I can offer veritable insight into university application and acceptance process. • UNIVERSITY APPLICATION SKILLS: Interview preparation; emailing with universities; university-specific, personalized exam prep for European universities with on-location entrance exams, collecting the right recommendations; writing winning application letters/essays from first idea to final spellcheck • TRANSFORMING STUDENTS INTO YOUNG ARTIST/DESIGNERS: With individually-tailored, highly-effective programs that merge art skills with professional skills, my students transform from ‘learner’ to ‘young professionals’ in a matter of months. >>> You will learn art skills including drawing, color skills, creating enticing/engaging compositions, experimentation and understanding of various artistic materials and techniques ([analog and digital] drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, video, animation, performance, interactive media...). >>> You will also learn any supportive computer software skills you might need (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dimension, Premiere, After Effects, 3DS Max/SketchUp/Blender). >>> You will create both major-specific projects and artwork that complements your major, to show you "have the right mindset" ;) >>> Finally, with classes that focus on art history and philosophy, and you will learn how to write and talk about art and design projects, which will make you truly stand out. My students transform into young designers/artists because of this well-rounded approach. This is why my success statistics are: 98% Total percentage of acceptances received (from all applications to date) 100% Total percentage of scholarships awarded (from universities that offer scholarships) 100% Total university placement (of all students to date) Are you unsure of yourself? Maybe you think “I don’t even have talent” or “I don’t know anything about being a designer/artist!”; “Can I still succeed”? My answer is “whatever your skill level might be right now, yes, you can still succeed.” I need only two things from you: You need to come to classes and you need to do your homework. But if you do these two student basics, I promise I will get you into your dream school. Really :) --
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.

Artiste et professeure confirmé enseigne le dessin en ligne pour tous niveaux : méthode atypique et sous protection intellectuelle.
Bonjour à toutes et tous ! 😊 Je suis l’artiste Axelle, professeur depuis 10 ans dans les ateliers parisiens, les universités et écoles d’art ainsi qu’en ligne pour les particuliers. Autodidacte, j’ai créé une méthode d’apprentissage du dessin atypique et sous protection intellectuelle : vous trouverez l’ensemble des informations de mes cours sur mon site internet dont l’adresse figure sur la première photo de cette annonce. Je peux enseigner en français et en anglais. Cette méthode, étoffée au cours de mes années d’enseignement et la collaboration des élèves, comprend entre autres l’étude du dessin, de la peinture, les proportions, l’expression humaine, l’observation, la colorimétrie ou encore l’art thérapie et démystifie tout ce que notre ère moderne apporte de biaisé à ces pratiques. Des explications simples, logiques et débarrassées de tout concepts artistiques flous, subjectifs, élitistes ou hasardeux, ainsi qu’un retour au cadre essentiel. Les termes Art, Artiste ou Observation sont redéfinis dans un espace naturel et factuel, le tout sous un angle scientifique et anthropologique. Le fonctionnement du cerveau, de la vision, de l’appréciation des distances, de l’évaluation de la couleur, de l’appétence à la texture ou encore le processus de la créativité sont expliqués lorsque nécessaire pour installer un laboratoire d’expérimentation sain et disponible chez l’élève. L’expression graphique étant une activité cognitive et psychomotrice, il est essentiel de comprendre les outils à notre portée pour mieux les utiliser et une communication limpide entre le professeur et l’élève est indispensable pour transmettre ce savoir-faire : d’où la difficulté grandissante d’enseigner une pratique sensorielle via simplement un livre ou auprès d’un auditoire dépassant la vingtaine d'élèves. Mon approche est la suivante : je ne suis que le professeur de l’instant et reste un éternel élève, à jamais seule disciple de l’expérience. Il en va de même pour mes élèves de l’instant à qui je transfère les outils leur permettant de devenir, à leur tour, leur propre professeur. L’Art exige une souplesse d’esprit, une connaissance de soi-même, l’abandon d’une certaine lutte et la rigueur que seule une passion peut enfanter sans efforts ni contraintes. Une fois ces lignes de fond maîtrisées et les aspects techniques assimilés, un merveilleux pouvoir s’ouvre à vous : celui de s’exprimer au plus près de votre Je intime avec la puissance et l'intensité que les mots ne peuvent atteindre, dans l’authenticité primitive et fidèle de ce qui réside au plus profond de votre conscience. L’expression humaine est le plus vertigineux des voyages. Côtoyer l’Art, c’est construire du bois le plus étanche et robuste le navire qui vous y emporte. Très ou trop souvent, je reçois en ateliers des adultes ou adolescents débutants en questionnement sincère entre eux et l'Art. Je prends mesure des barrières imaginaires et inconscientes que les idées d'aujourd'hui dressent, et du gâchis notable que cela peut engendrer. L'outil le plus important dans l'apprentissage du dessin demeure l'Observation, trop souvent sous-estimée, à tord : c'est pourquoi ma méthode unique se calque sur notre façon de percevoir et de penser le monde. Nous mettons dès les premières minutes l'accent sur cet outil qui regroupe 80% de notre aptitude à dessiner, plutôt qu'un cadre éducatif classique qui omettra l'aspect humain et neurocognitif pourtant capital derrière cette pratique. Alors quelque soit votre profession, votre personnalité ou votre passé, soyez assurés d'être légitime dans vos premiers pas vers le dessin ou la peinture : ne doutez plus de l'Artiste qui sommeille en vous.

Geography and History, Art History, Humanities, Language and Literature classes, school support and homework help
In my classes I use a methodology that prioritizes understanding in the study, for which I make use of diagrams, summaries, mind maps and the use of ICT as basic tools in the teaching-learning method. I believe that simply memorizing content is easily forgotten in the long run, so I use comprehension-based strategies as they are much more effective.
