Observational Drawing for all levels and ages (b/w & color)

Drawing courses with a unique approach. You'll be amazed at how quickly you level up!

For over 10 years, I have been developing a method that allows my students to learn observational drawing at record speed. Through pictorial and observational exercises, my students become adept at drawing *any and all* observational subjects in:
4 months with 1 day/wk classes at 4 hrs/day
2 weeks at 6 days/wk classes at 6 hrs/day

.

Please choose one of the two courses:

>> OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING (B/W): If you don't know how to draw, pick this one. If you "know how to draw except for" portraits/perspective/etc, this is the best program for you too. (details below)

>> COLOR OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING: If you can draw anything from observation, but want to understand how color works, pick this one. If your goal is to make oil paintings and you already know how to draw, this is your program too. (details below)

.

>> OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING (black/white) <<
For those who want to learn drawing or those who want to improve their drawing skills quickly

*Observational Drawing Topics*:
Line quality
Drawing the hand
Using negative space in drawing and in composition
Making strong compositions
Measuring sizes and angles
Drawing plants and furniture
Drawing the human figure
Shading methods
Drawing perspective
Drawing with light
Composing with light
Drawing the interior
Drawing the face, proportions
Drawing light and shadow
Portraiture
Materials used: Graphite, Charcoal, Markers/India ink, paper

Since this is a technique class, I recommend that you take at least 4 hours/week to be able to experience your improvement class by class. If you wish to take less hours, please note that with a 2 hours/day course, you will complete the program in 10-12 months, which will be caused by not gaining enough momentum during class time.


>> COLOR OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING <<
For those who want to learn color in representational art. Become skillful at using color in your works.

*Color Observational Drawing Topics*:
Basic color theory
Interrelationship of colors
Mixing colors
Composition with colors: Creating abstract drawings
Drawing the self-portrait
Drawing the nature-morte
Drawing interior/exterior architecture
Drawing plants and gardens
Materials used: Color pencils, soft pastels, photography, color paper

Please note that this course is designed for students who already Can do observational drawings. If you are unsure of your level, I recommend starting with the "Observational Drawing" program.

Experience / Qualifications

20 years of teaching experience: Taught at Okan University before teaching at my own studio for 10 years. Currently, I also work as an interviewer for Wesleyan University, my alma mater, which offers me unparalleled insight into university acceptance process.

My success statistics are:
98% Total percentage of acceptances received (from all applications to date)
100% Total percentage of scholarships awarded (from universities that offer
scholarships)
100% Total university placement (of all students to date)

My past students have been accepted to these programs:

I have sent students to these countries:
UK, Italy, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, France, Hungary, Czechia, Switzerland, USA
I am an attentive, dedicated, and lively art teacher with 10 years of experience in portfolio preparation and university counseling. I help students with: • CREATING A WINNING PORTFOLIO: Learn how to create ambitious, interesting works; how to take good photos of artwork; how to edit images with Adobe Photoshop; how to write smart, intellectual texts on your works; how to layout and design a portfolio with Adobe InDesign, typography, which works to include in which order for each portfolio (you should *never* send the same portfolio to all schools! :D). • SCHOOL SEARCH AND UNIVERSITY COUNSELLING: North American / European university recommendations (France, UK, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden,...); finding the right schools for you, finding and applying for scholarships. I also work as an interviewer for my alma mater; as such I can offer veritable insight into university application and acceptance process. • UNIVERSITY APPLICATION SKILLS: Interview preparation; emailing with universities; university-specific, personalized exam prep for European universities with on-location entrance exams, collecting the right recommendations; writing winning application letters/essays from first idea to final spellcheck • TRANSFORMING STUDENTS INTO YOUNG ARTIST/DESIGNERS: With individually-tailored, highly-effective programs that merge art skills with professional skills, my students transform from ‘learner’ to ‘young professionals’ in a matter of months. >>> You will learn art skills including drawing, color skills, creating enticing/engaging compositions, experimentation and understanding of various artistic materials and techniques ([analog and digital] drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, video, animation, performance, interactive media...). >>> You will also learn any supportive computer software skills you might need (Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dimension, Premiere, After Effects, 3DS Max/SketchUp/Blender). >>> You will create both major-specific projects and artwork that complements your major, to show you "have the right mindset" ;) >>> Finally, with classes that focus on art history and philosophy, and you will learn how to write and talk about art and design projects, which will make you truly stand out. My students transform into young designers/artists because of this well-rounded approach. This is why my success statistics are: 98% Total percentage of acceptances received (from all applications to date) 100% Total percentage of scholarships awarded (from universities that offer scholarships) 100% Total university placement (of all students to date) To achieve the same success as the students before you: You need to come to classes and you need to do your homework. But if you do these two student basics, I promise I will get you into your dream school. Really :) --

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.

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.

Creative Exploration Workshop: Discover Your Potential. Online.
A nine-hour online workshop to explore your creativity and experiment with artistic techniques This workshop, suitable for all audiences, is designed to experiment with and explore artistic techniques. The results will surprise you. Any technique is an excuse to play, to break the rules, and to experiment. We should feel free to try without worrying about the final outcome. As an advocate of the creative process, I believe that the goal is not the result itself but rather an element we sometimes discover midway. Unleash your unconscious and flow throughout the process, which, on this occasion, is more important than the final result. We will enjoy the journey because it is the only thing that truly matters. In this workshop, we will express ourselves freely, release blockages, overcome fear to enhance our creative potential. We will also learn to break and discard the work we've done. And, of course, to have fun.
