Create your very own Nature Journal in pencil, ink and watercolour

There's a big wild world out there, just waiting for you!
In this course you will learn how to create your unique nature journal, with your own drawings of animals, plants and natural landscapes in and around Brussels.
We will start with the basics of drawing and watercolour sketching in my studio or at your place, and then quickly move on to sketching from life outside. As you develop your nature journal, you will learn about, appreciate, and love the wildlife all around you, and create a lasting collection of memories in the pages of your journal.

Extra information

Please provide your own sketchbook journal and drawing/watercolour materials. I can advise you what's the best deal...

About Me

Nature and art have been my two greatest loves for my whole life, and I enjoy opening others' eyes to the wonder and beauty of nature through art. Each of us has a unique perspective and artistic language, and it's very rewarding to create one's personal nature journal.

Education

I have a university degree in art history from my studies in the United States and have studied drawing at the Royal Fine Arts Academy in Brussels (Académie Royale des Beaux Arts de Bruxelles), as well as courses in printmaking.

Experience / Qualifications

Since 2004 I have pursued art full-time, and have had many solo and shared exhibitions in Belgium and beyond. I spend a lot of time sketching outdoors and observing wildlife in all its variety, both great and small.

Helena
Artist graduated in Drawing la Cambre, here to accompany you in your drawing practice
I like to offer tailor-made courses to people who want to practice drawing. To establish a personalized work methodology, an initial conversation is therefore fundamental. Similar to coaching, drawing lessons are between technical and fun learning, while having fun! I recommend various exercises that allow the mastery of drawing, the work of the gaze and the discovery of one's artistic intention. The ultimate goal is to surpass oneself in one's creativity and become autonomous in one's practice. With patience and pedagogy, I offer creative solutions to overcome everyone's difficulties. Concerned about a rewarding learning, it is in benevolence and exchange that I intend to accompany those who wish to appropriate drawing techniques. And since this is close to my heart, I like to introduce the work of a female artist and/or artist belonging to gender minorities at the end of the course to enrich everyone's references and culture and fight against their invisibility!

Cours de théâtre, art de la parole, et improvisation
Dans cette classe, vous pouvez apprendre l'art du spectacle. Elle a pour but de vous faire confiance et surtout, confiance en l'autre. Elle est donc parfaite pour les plus timides qui ont envie de s'affirmer, comme les plus extraverties qui veulent, au contraire, canaliser leurs énergies et être plus en rapport avec l'autre. Elle est parfaite aussi pour celles et ceux qui cherchent à répéter leurs scènes et leur texte de déclamation pour une entrée dans une haute école d'art de la scène. La classe se déroule de manière suivante : nous commençons par des échauffements de corps et de voix, puis nous finissons le reste du cours par des exercices d'improvisations, seul ou à deux.

Georgiana
Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign
I have up to 3 years experience as a graphic designer and illustrator within a Book Publishing House. By being part of the bookmaking process from the very beginning, I shared my ideas in brainstorming meetings along with the account managers, the editorial team and the art director on the projects. I was able to grow my organizational and planning skills by creating designs for covers and interior layouts, by illustrating book covers and short stories, and by delivering print ready files for many projects at the same time. Besides licensed publishing and in-house projects, I am also involved in producing advertising materials for our projects, such as flyers, posters and banners for online and offline marketing and attention to details is my little name. In my class you will learn to be creative and the means to express your creativity.

Cours Coaching
CINEMA, ACTING, IMPROVISATION WORKSHOPS - - -
These sessions allow the development of skills and knowledge of the trade, with the game facing the camera, familiarization with the audiovisual environment and the camera tool, in the art of acting. Your inventiveness and your uniqueness being at the center of your training, it is a question of dwelling on the objective criteria, such as the voice, the use of the body, the relationship with the partner, the capacity to occupy the space. But it is also the singularity and the commitment that are decisive. The objective of this training is to be able to: - Analyze and dissect a text - Create, develop and embody a character - Understand the artistic and technical writings of a film or a play - Create, cultivate and develop one's artistic identity and singularity (...) Through simulations and role-playing, the association between theory and practice makes it possible to achieve its objectives. PLACES : - 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, for which you have asked me, also seem to be perfectly unanimous since they arouse a certain enthusiasm (and a certain enthusiasm). Indeed, they have the advantage of face-to-face sessions (ex: quality of the interaction), without its disadvantages (ex: loss of travel time) with additional advantages (ex: the entire session transcribed in writing on the chat). That is why, at your request, I continue to offer this option. - As other people do regularly, you can also please your loved ones by offering gift vouchers available all year round. THE TRAINER From a Grande Ecole post-preparatory class in France & Ivy League University in the United States, our teacher has specialized and has worked for more than 14 years in the field, in international establishments, intervening in forums and conferences. CONTACT / PROGRAM A la carte program: evaluated and adapted to each need.

Learn how to draw: If you can See, you can Draw :-)
A lot of people think they cannot draw. But before drawing, it is about "seeing". Actually if you can see, you can draw. Not only objects, but portraits, animals, whatever you want. By developing the aptitude of observing the reality using the right part of your brain, you learn how to draw what you really see instead of drawing what you think you already know about this reality. This technique was a revelation as it allowed me to progress quickly when I was young. It's on this base that I will help you to learn another way of looking at things around you and show you some tricks to overcome difficulties as perspective, foreshorten,...

DRAWING COURSE Observation - Sketch (Medium Free)
Methodology The proposed teaching aims to develop the plastic qualities and the personality of the pupil through the drawing as well as his sense of the observation by various playful and inventive exercises. Learn to draw differently, avoid automatism and break free / detach from habits to develop new graphic qualities. My objective is to allow the development of the student through this medium and to ensure the continuation of his practice. I have been giving drawing lessons for a few years now and I like to share my activity through amateur teaching. I particularly developed skills by deepening observational drawing (live model, still life, landscape, architecture, objects, shadow work, tracing, one-line-drawing). My methods take into account the discovery of the sensitive applicable to drawing, the mastery of its visual faculties, of a technique of representations ranging from academic to letting go, promoting personal development as well as one's own style of representation. My pedagogical approach still requires a student interested and curious to learn. All ages are possible.

Daria
Drawing course for beginners and intermediate (technique + developing your own style)
My course is dedicated to the 'basic' rules of drawing and after that finding your own path, your own style. If you know how to use perspective, composition, capture the right proportions, capture the volume and be attentive to detail, you are fully prepared for making any kind of art you are into. When we will reach this point, I will also help you to go further and develop your own style. I will teach you how to work with visual observation, perspective, volume, light and shadow, composition, proportions, and sketching using graphic material. In order to learn how to draw you need a lot of practice, so I will assign some homework as well. The course is suitable for people of all ages and with different aims, it is always possible to change the learning program for individual purposes. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!
