About Me

Hey, nice to meet you! I am Leanta( Tan for short) , a mother with unpredictable disabilities and primary caring responsibilities for my son who has complex needs; and a 3d mixed media textile designer, maker and artist
I found my passion for textiles during my challenging, forever changing, Resilient journey. I cannot imagine my life without textiles as a part of my existence. It has given me a voice and strength to push through the trials of life.
I especially enjoy expressing my self through the process of my practice.
My work is very much inspired by the hidden layers of our Identities. The process is where all the different layers of my identity come alive.
I would like to share this passion with you; I know you too can express yourself through designing textiles.

See you soon!
Tan

Christian

Komal
Arts,Crafts, Drawing, Painting, Sketching and Calligraphy
I am a very passionate person when it comes to making fun with colours, drawing, crafts and calligraphy. I love to teach the above topics as much as I can. Also, I am a firm believer in a beautiful handwriting. And the focus is to learn from the basics to an advanced level.

Evelyne
Illustrator offers art classes / drawing / painting
I offer drawing / painting classes for all levels. Possibility of working different techniques (oil painting, illustration crayons, pastels, rotring frames, watercolors, acrylics, paper mache, wire sculpture and tissue paper etc ...). I adapt to the students' favorite style and offer help to find one's own style, a good acquisition of techniques, a development of creativity, a self-expression, and of course good moments in joy and good humor. I have a preference to teach children, teenagers and students of my age, I admit to not being very comfortable with adults, but this is always possible. Since I'm studying psychology, I'm also trying to use the medium of drawing to find what my students need to open up and flourish, art as therapy. In general, the students I had felt very comfortable with me, as if they were at home, and I hope to be able to bring my students to deepen their creativity but also to help them understand what they love and need.

Alice
Graduate teacher for exam assistance, essay writing, general culture or guided tours
I give private lessons in art history for three years, either for students who need an accompaniment, or for the curious who want to enrich their artistic culture. My teaching adapts precisely to the needs of each student and especially to their way of assimilating information. Former student in difficulty, I developed a method that allows to analyze any type of work, from classical to contemporary, without prior knowledge. I am specialized in the methodology of dissertation / dissertation according to the rules of the French University. (Construction of the plan, development of a common thread, layout etc.) Passionate, I also like to transmit the wonderful stories of the works during introductory courses in art history, artistic culture or guided tours of the museum. My classes are also convivial moments where we can talk about our personal interests, which allows me to direct my students to exhibitions, readings or events related to their subject. My goal is obviously to make my students autonomous, so I give them all the tools they need to know how to provide excellent work without being dependent on the particular teacher at the end of the year. My last students: - Zaïd: redoubling for the second time his degree in Visual Arts at the Sorbonne because of theoretical subjects, passed his exams successfully this year. He regained confidence and taste to study. -Claire: student at Boulle school in woodcarving redoubled because of his memory. I supervised him in the writing of his new dissertation mixing literary analysis, artistic and scientific discoveries. She validated it brilliantly. -Tian: 30 years old, Chinese student, had no knowledge of the history of Western art. After one year of private lessons, she was admitted to the GRETA School of Guides Speakers. -Aude: I guide Aude and her two teenage children in the big museums to discover the little stories behind each painting. From the Palais de Tokyo to the Louvre Museum I invent for them playful ways to apprehend the works. - Jacqueline: 94, had lost her good humor and was bored. For two years now, we meet every week for a moment of sharing and exchange around artistic themes chosen especially for her. It's a joy for everyone.

Blender 2.9x, 3D modeling by a LinkedIn trainer & Twitch streamer
Whether you are a beginner, a designer or just curious to learn, go for it. Being self-taught is great to start with, but I learned that you also develop bad habits very easily. As a trainer on the Linkedin Learning platform, I will give you access to the training of the essentials of Blender 2.8 and we can thus devote ourselves to perfecting your skills during private lessons. My methodology is simple, it wants to be accessible and adapted to the learner, that's the whole point of a private course. Let's explore Blender 2.9x together through an introductory or advanced course.

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.

Painting and drawing for young children is easy and fun.
Painting helps improve children's imaginations. Therefore, it is better to teach our children to draw properly so that they can put their ideas on paper. We also teach children to interact with colors by learning to paint so that in the future we can have successful architects, fashionistas, painters and graphic artists.
