    Private Art Lesson, learn to illustrate, paint and build your own confidence

    Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
    For many people, drawing and painting are a nice way of self-expression. I am an experienced artist with a background in psychology and mindfulness, and I would love to help you develop your ideas, technique, and self-confidence at your own pace. We first discuss your goals for yourself and your art, and then we work systematically every week to reach your milestones. The beauty is that you see your process grow in your sketchbook, in your environment where you can hang it proudly, and in the people around you who can make you happy by sharing your art and your experience.

    ARTS - FROM CLASSICAL DRAWING ALL THROUGH MATERIALITY
    The practical insight has been developed throughout enduring studies from 2 different institutional perspectives inspired the urge to convey this to the art enthusiasts of all levels and age. Each age is special within the education similarly all targets pointed from the creative spirits creating thus various anticipations. Those anticipations are the basis of each class. My classes are designed through collaborations when it comes to experimentations or intersected fields and mediums, which is an option and pertinent characteristic of approach. However the one who lasts for foundation and aspires him/her the concept of taking it further to possible academic preparation will grab charcoals, a spoke, the required papers, instal from simple to complex still life compositions and set forth the journey of academic drawing theory. And then, of course, start with colour, of both acrylic and oil medium. Pre-school children, children and teenagers are highly encouraged to experiment with different materials and techniques and preferably through themes - selected by me or the student's likings as well. Needless to say that suchlike classes do not necessarily mean free-time activity, the academic material is intentionally or not(unconsciously) always a present element of my instructive performance. Therefore, the game becomes teaching/learning relation, whilst teaching and learning turn into a recreational joyful moment for all participants. The aforementioned forms of classes are applicable to all ages.
