About Me

I am an Artist and Designer working across textiles, fashion and illustration. I have a Masters Degree in Fashion Knitwear from the Royal College of Art and am currently developing some new materials in the field of fibre science!

I believe that building a strong skill base enables students to harness their imagination and turn ideas into real, tangible pieces. I am consistently surprised by the young people I work with, and have discovered a real passion for sharing my skills as an art-maker throughout my teaching career so far. I love to work with colour and line and encourage students to take a curious, experimental approach to their learning. My priority is for students to become independent and build confidence with the skills we explore, becoming able to create things they are truly proud of.

I have taught students aged 6 to 60 over the last 4 years and enjoy sharing my skills with students of all levels. My specialisms are in Life Drawing, Illustration, Textiles Skills and Fashion Design, although my interests spread far and wide.

Education

Masters Degree in Fashion from the Royal College of Art in London, due to complete 2020

Bachelors First Class Honours Degree from Manchester Metropolitan University 2014

Experience / Qualifications

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

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.

Mary
Swahili and English for beginners intermediate and advanced
I have been teaching English as a private tutor for the past 2 years. Through my teaching experience I also learnt that every student's needs and struggles are different. I enjoyed sharing knowledge with my students and watching them gain confidence in holding conversations in English and in their reading and writing was very fulfilling. Explaining ideas in ways that make them easier to understand is something that I delight in.I would describe my teaching style as kind, fun and patient. My goal as a teacher is to meet the requests of the students and understand what they aim to achieve so the the lessons are customized to the student's concerns. I teach pronunciations, engineering terminology, grammar and will focus on conversational skills. I do not give homework and I normally do not prepare for lessons.

Painting/Sketching/Watercolour class For Young People
Hello Everyone, I have been graduated with a Master in Fine Art from India, currently enrolled in an M.A in Arts and cultural management. I have knowledge in painting, drawing, and sketching techniques and also the history of art. I have started this watercolor class to show how beautiful this medium can be and how you can explore it in your own way. Watercolour is considered a different technique that many artists don't want to touch sometimes. With my class, you will see how fun it can be to paint with watercolor. Feel free to inquire about any other Art related topics, I will be there to help. If you want to learn a specific technique or medium, or recreation of the artwork we can work on it also.
