About Me

Hi,
I'm Petra, a 26 years old artist from Indonesia who lives in Geneva, Switzerland. I grew up in Ambon in the Moluccas, in an Artist Community where we use to organize Street Art and Visual Poetry exhibitions almost every two months. Give me a pencil, I will sketch a delicate miniature. Give me sprays or colors, I will make your walls come alive by filling them with deep forests and colorful birds.

Beside this, I teach my native Indonesian language, in a fun and artistic way, by focusing on communication without forgetting the form (in both colloquial and standard languages).

I can teach in both Indonesian and English languages (and also in basic French), whether at my own place, at yours or on line. Just contact me so we can start work together.

Petra

Donnez-moi des sprays et des couleurs, je rendrai vos murs pleins de vie en les remplissant de profondes forêts et d'oiseaux multicolores.

À côté de cela, j'enseigne l'indonésien qui ma langue maternelle d'une manière amusante et artistique, en me concentrant sur la communication sans oublier la forme (aussi bien dans la langue parlée habituelle que dans la langue écrite standard.

Je peux enseigner aussi bien en indonésien qu'en français (et également en français basique), que ce soit chez moi, chez vous ou en ligne. Contactez-moi seulement pour que nous puissions à travailler ensemble.

Theoretical classes are available online. Classes are held in English and Russian. Feel free to write me if you have any additional questions! See you soon!

Leana
Intermediate Drawing Course and Beginner Experienced Student
Hello, Being certified of the ECG in the Visual Arts section and having followed the majority of my schooling in this field, I wish to give drawing lessons to those who wish to improve in this field. I offer courses of all kinds, according to the desires and the level of each one. I can teach you the techniques of sketching, observation and reporting in 2D and 3D, notions of perspectives, light and shadow, proportions like those of the human body, etc. I want to give my lessons in a feeling of sharing knowledge acquired during my studies, moving away as far as possible from a school atmosphere. In my opinion, it is more pleasant to learn the specifics of drawing this way. Of course, I am happy to adapt to the demands and expectations of my students. Do not hesitate to contact me for any additional information. Good day to you Leana

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.

The fee for your lesson includes all of my lesson planning and any written feedback I may provide for you. *If your location is more than 5 miles from BH12 then there will be an additional fee for my time travelling for you. This is charged at half the hourly teaching rate pro rata.

Realistic drawing, academic drawing, figurative drawing
Contrary to popular belief, realistic drawing will never be outdated, not because of some strange fixation in academic art, but because of its usefulness in a huge variety of tasks that are or are not related to the art field. To me, more than anything, realistic drawing offers an explanation of the world that is somehow shoothing and fulfilling.
