Freehand still life and architectural drawing sketching - traditional medium

The freehand drawing is the first tool used in designing a building, the daily practice of the architectural design process. In the age of computers, despite its visibility has decreased, freehand drawings have become even more precious; the role of freehand drawing in communicating our ideas and thoughts gives us the opportunity to make use of the simplest intuitive connection between our mind and the hand through exercising our bidimensional skills in order to represent a tridimensional universe.

The class will be organised upon the traditional still life drawing technique in atelier/workshop. The student is placed at a distance from the still figure that allows them to place their easel and paper next to the object to be represented. The drawing and the object will be the same size, which allows for easier comparison of distances and angles carefully measured.
We will learn hatching technique used to create tonal or shading effects, and many other techniques of drawing elements of design: layer tinting, texturing and form lines.

The class includes advanced notions of perspective.

Extra information

The main medium is graphite pencils, but we will also learn how to use instruments like charcoal, ink, watercolor, inked brushes, various kinds of erasers.

About Me

As architect and former university associate professor of architectural project design and study of form, with an experience over two decades, my teaching-centred method is the traditional drawing of the realistic representation, which still is the main exercise for the future architects to be able to act, observe, reflect and express their visual mind on 'paper'.
Difficult geometric areas or masses which define objects in space will become easy and fun to draw with an adequate attention to the 'secrets' of how to represent depth as well as width and height, contrasted light and shadow (chiaroscuro effect), materiality, composition and so.
My aim is to increase in students’ competencies the skills helpful to motivate themselves to meet design demands in their (future) profession as architects, with confidence and a positive attitude.

Ink and watercolor sketching course - Master ENSAV La Cambre
Graduated from a Masters in interior architecture at the National School of Visual Arts in La Cambre for 3 years, I offer private lessons in sketch and watercolor drawing in Brussels. My lessons are suitable for children and adults of all levels. From the first class you will already see progress, my approach is fairly free, the trick is to trust you and let go a little bit through spontaneous gestures, it's very meditative ... :-) The lessons can be given to several people at the same time, I will ask for a small supplement per additional person.

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.

Drawing, Painting, and Fine Arts classes for beginners, advanced students, adults, and art admirers
The freedom of creativity is the most attractive way of self expression. However, to achieve the mastery to utilise consciously and productively this freedom, with both joy and confidence, with value and satisfaction, you need to have the 'tools' and attain certain skills to guide, facilitate, and uncover your potential. A grate achievement could not be done without breaking the rules, but to break the rules convincingly and doubtlessly, you first need to learn, acknowledge, and understand their natural laws and traditions. Therefore, I am inviting to my tutorial classes, where online or in person, on beginner or advanced level, you will meet and learn the basic and most important skills of Drawing and Painting systematically through observation, will practice and experiment to fully master a medium or a technique, will support your practice with Art and Color theory, Perspective, and History of Art, in order to start easily drawing yourself, interpreting a favourite scene or a subject on a paper or canvas, and will create you diverse and appealing collection of artworks with attention, imagination, and excitement.

Drawing / painting course and introduction to graphic design (photoshop, illustrator - vector drawing)
Dynamic and creative, I am very patient and I want to encourage you in a positive way and focus on the progress you are making and your strengths. After my bachelor's degree in computer graphics, I did a master's degree in communication and performing arts. I then moved to London for a few months where I started by giving French lessons via this platform. I did various internships in audiovisual centers as well as in a fablab (3D printing, laser cutting, vector design, etc.) I have drawn all my life, whether on a course sheet margin, canvas, wall or graphics tablet. During my training in computer graphics, I developed better drawing techniques and I learned to use software such as Photoshop, Illustrator (vector drawing), After Effect (motion design), Premiere Pro (video editing). If you are really new to computers and more basic programs, I am also here to help. In my opinion, it is easier to learn when we talk about things that interest us. This is why I will ask you to share your hobbies and interests so that I can learn about them in order to prepare an attractive and appropriate lesson. The computer / artistic field allows us a great freedom of subject. We can try multiple techniques: whether in drawing, painting or computer graphics.
