The Art of Oil Painting: Learn how to draw and paint like Monet & Van Gogh!

In this 1-1 class you will learn how to use oil paint and make fabulous artworks! Whether you are a beginner or if you already have much experience with painting, it doesn't matter. I can teach you everything about ART: colors, values, composition, and of course ... how to practically use oil paints and brushes in a safe manner. If you want to learn how to draw (better), that is also something I can show and explain. I specialize in two styles: impressionism and fauvism, and love to do landscapes and still lives. But I can also show you how a classical portrait painting can be done, for example in the grand style of William Bouguereau. I got my education from the Classical Academy of Painting (Groningen, NL) as well as the hogeschool for art in Amsterdam.
Hope to meet you soon in Haarlem!

About Me

My name is Christiaan (38). I am a schoolteacher at an international school in the Netherlands. I enjoy art a lot and have many years of experience in both painting and drawing. Also since I was a child I learned to play the piano and can give piano lessons to beginners and intermediate students. I speak both English (good) and Dutch (really good).

Education

Klassieke Academie voor Schilderkunst (Groningen, NL). Here I learned all the various aspects of art. History, interpretation, various styles and practical ways to approach painting.

Experience / Qualifications

Since 2009 I have been making paintings. I studied in total for three years at art school, after which I went my own way! I have had professional piano instruction for over 15 years.
If you learn piano that is something you and your whole family and friends will enjoy, for many years to come. You will learn how to read notes, play from music, use both hands at the same time and eventually be able to play a variety of musical styles. Playing piano is something you do with your mind, heart and soul and it is a true art! It is not easy but it is also not impossible. Very soon you will be playing nice songs, and if you practice a lot you will notice you can soon play pieces that are more and more beautiful. Depending on the level of the student we will select the appropriate study material. Also learning how to read music notation and playing in tempo will be part of the lesson. For intermediate students more focus will be for example on articulation of melody, dynamics, phrasing and how to play in a classical or popular style. I am now 38, I have been studying piano since I was 8 and later on also keyboard. I started out like anyone with the most basic pieces, getting lessons here and there from a friend of my mother. Later on piano teacher Sherry van Baaren visited our house for many years, teaching me the basic piano repertoire. As well as several other teachers. When I moved to Enschede I studied with Russian pianist Michail Markov on the correct interpretation of classical music, such as Mozart sonatas and other more romantic pieces. At the moment I play in my own band and also compose pieces. For my work I am a teacher at an international primary school in the Netherlands so I am used to working with children ages 3-12. Four is the minimum age for piano. But of course adults who want to learn piano are very welcome as well! The times you see in the calendar is my vacation schedule starting from the 1st of Aug. Looking forward to seeing you soon! Kind regards, Christiaan.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.

Illustrator offers art classes / drawing / painting
I offer drawing / painting classes for all levels. Possibility of working different techniques (oil painting, illustration crayons, pastels, rotring frames, watercolors, acrylics, paper mache, wire sculpture and tissue paper etc ...). I adapt to the students' favorite style and offer help to find one's own style, a good acquisition of techniques, a development of creativity, a self-expression, and of course good moments in joy and good humor. I have a preference to teach children, teenagers and students of my age, I admit to not being very comfortable with adults, but this is always possible. Since I'm studying psychology, I'm also trying to use the medium of drawing to find what my students need to open up and flourish, art as therapy. In general, the students I had felt very comfortable with me, as if they were at home, and I hope to be able to bring my students to deepen their creativity but also to help them understand what they love and need.

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.

Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.
