About Me

An art teacher with more than 10 years of experience

Education

National Academy of Art and Architecture, Kiev, Ukraine.

Experience / Qualifications

MA in Illustration, 2001
I invite you to join my lessons of art and academic drawing. The program of the courses includes drawing, art discussing, studying the techniques of grand masters, drawing with different means, developing an ability to understand the History of Art. Most of my students are planning to enter an art academy, but also I teach families with children and adults, who are non-professional artists. If you practice visual arts, whatever you do, whether it is painting or drawing from life, any work still reveals, even implicitly, your knowledge of perspective, understanding of the conveyance of space depth on the 2-dimensional plane of a sheet.... These skills are universal to all visual art disciplines, they are important to every artist, and mastering them will make you part of a group of professionals. However, to advance in training you must understand your mistakes and be able to evaluate your works. This requires individual work with a teacher one-on-one. Therefore, I offer lessons, advice on drawing via Skype in real time mode one-on-one with the teacher, in the course of which we will discuss particularly your works, analyze particularly your works and select tasks for independent work particularly for you. At the lessons I answer the questions about art, artists, history of art, give consultations on homework, the drawings that were made independently, discuss different topics related to art. Using my experience working as a graphic designer and my experience from working at an advertising agency, I have developed an art program that helps eleven to sixteen year old children gain applicable and useful skills in drawing and painting which could be relevant in numerous professions. The lessons are relevant to various topics that can give a child a general outlook on different art professions. Except for academic drawing and painting skills, we study professional terms and topics that are related to different commercial art fields. This overview is important because though many children are interested in drawing, they may not know their precise artistic inclinations. They can not answer the question, "what artistic field (animation, movie making, graphic design etc.) interests them most?" We review classical textbooks at the lessons, and discuss how drawing skills, and the understanding of composition are used in different art fields. Most of us are familiar with the classical textbook on typography, Typography by Emil Ruder. But how do we understand it ? What is the "negative space" of a character? How do we tell a story using visually different types? And what is most interesting in the work of a graphic designer? These questions are answered at my lessons. Other engrossing books are: Picture Composition for Film and Television by Peter Ward, and The Visual Story : Creating the Visual Structure of Film, TV and Digital Media by Bruce Block. These books discuss art in a professional framework and define the professional terms that are used in movie making and video. They are understandable to children over fourteen years old who study academic drawing, painting and composition under my direction. I took part in these exhibitions- 1996 CATECHISMUS-450, Vilnius, Lithuania 1997 Lietuvos MOKYKLAI-600, Vilnius, Lithuania MINI PRINT INTERNATIONAL 18 , Cadaques, Spain 18DE BIENNALE VAN DE KLEIGRAFIEK , Belgium 2000 INTERNATIONAL TRIENNAL OF GRAPHIC ART, Bitola, Czech Republic 2008 SOVIART gallery. Group exhibition. Kiev, Ukraine. Also I won some Awards - 2002 II Prize International Plain air in Pshemysl, Poland 2003 Grant | residency Foundation Valparaiso, Spain 2006 Bourse de Gouvernement Français, (Scholarship of French government), ENS de Cachan, Paris, France 2007 Partial scholarship | residency San Serrat, Spain 2008 III Prize in Painting Contest De Ribas organized by the Embassy of Spain, Kiev, Ukraine
If you have a beautiful garden or live in a countryside close to nature, you can start your drawing with exercises using simple plants.The shapes that can be found in the natural environment are variable and studying them is a true pleasure. Take a look at these drawings below. These drawings by Henri Matisse were inspired by ordinary trees and plants.

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.

Learn how to draw: If you can See, you can Draw :-)
A lot of people think they cannot draw. But before drawing, it is about "seeing". Actually if you can see, you can draw. Not only objects, but portraits, animals, whatever you want. By developing the aptitude of observing the reality using the right part of your brain, you learn how to draw what you really see instead of drawing what you think you already know about this reality. This technique was a revelation as it allowed me to progress quickly when I was young. It's on this base that I will help you to learn another way of looking at things around you and show you some tricks to overcome difficulties as perspective, foreshorten,...
