Art and interior design go hand in hand. Artwork should seamlessly blend with the space while showcasing the client’s personality. However, incorrect placement within the interior can result in an unbalanced space and diminish the artwork’s aesthetic appeal. Let’s explore ways to enhance interior aesthetics.
Design Initiation is a class designed for children, adolescents, and seniors alike.

Tailoring the approach to each apprentice’s potential and interests, we will incorporate drawing, illustration, typography, and photography, as well as explore the use of popular social media platforms. Additionally, lessons will cover strategies for standing out among other designers, the creation of mood boards, design best practices, and techniques to make designs appealing and visible to a broad audience. For those with a particular interest in calligraphy techniques, specialized courses will be available. And much more awaits future designers!

Private lessons in History, French and Art History
Good morning ! I am currently a master's student in general history at the University of Geneva. My studies allowed me to acquire a solid base of knowledge and skills, both in writing and in research. My knowledge of historical facts as well as Latin and ancient Greek will allow me, I hope, to be able to push the explanations given by the teachers in class and perhaps lift the veil on possible misunderstandings on the part of the students. The objective is to support students in difficulty as well as those who would simply like to consolidate their knowledge. In both cases, I am keen to be able to make the disciplines that I teach a little more digestible and to arouse students' interest in history, literature and the arts, to show them that not everything is not just a matter of stupid and nasty cramming, and that understanding always takes precedence over rote. It also seems essential to me to acquire a good sense of organization, which is the source of all effective and useful work. Therefore, if some students seem to be having difficulty with their homework and the organization of their lessons, I would be very happy to be able to help in this regard. Looking forward to meeting you, by webcam or live!

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.
