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

Carlos
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.

ART 🎨Drawing & Painting & Creating & Experimenting
In any subject that we are doing, we do need to be creative. It is the most interesting time to just be present and to be focused on something that makes us happy and peaceful, calm and in the same time so excited about it. I would like to share my skills with anyone who would like to help how to sketch, to draw, to paint, to see and watch things around, to make something, to experiment, work with paper, colours, fabrics, etc. or just think about art or some creative things. This class is for anyone, doesn’t care about age. I’ve been teaching in a private school group of people from 9-40 (more less) y.o. and we all really enjoyed that together. I would be happy to show you how to think creatively. Feel free to write me about anything you would like to know more or you are not sure or if you want to know any more information. Denisa
