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.
My tutoring is dedicated to students who are already attending Art Schools or Universities. I am specialised in supervision of student current work and projects in course, as well as revision of exams material. The goal is to boost students' capacities, teach them to optimise working time, coach them with methods of learning and to keep students constantly challenged.
Design Initiation is a class designed for children, adolescents, and seniors alike. Through engaging and unconventional learning methods, apprentices will acquire the foundational knowledge of the design process, which will serve as a cornerstone for their future creative expressions. During this course, we will explore various aspects of design, including 1. Seeking inspiration 2. Identifying starting points in the creative process 3. Utilizing different platforms and tools in design 4. Understanding how selected elements transform into design products 5. Recognizing the significance of graphic design across fields such as fashion, interior architecture, industrial and furniture design, and more. 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!

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.
