Learn the basics of painting (Skills, Technique, Style)

Whether you have decided to pick up a new hobby during the COVID-19 induced lockdowns or you have just always been curious about picking up a new skill, painting is a liberating way to get creative!
I strongly believe that painting (and art in general) should be about the expression of yourself, in whatever way you feel like. However, a few tips and tricks to get you started and aide your artistic journey may go a long way! Thus this class is for anyone interested in getting to know the basics of painting: what materials should you use? How do you mix paints and colours to get a desired outcome? And for those struggling to decide on an object, an answer to 'what should I even paint?!'
As this is a very creative and subjective topic, the classes are tailored to the students' needs and wishes - so if you know nothing about painting, don't worry, we'll get you up to speed in no time!

Extra information

You will need to buy your own painting materials. If you need guidance, contact me prior to the first class so that I can provide some tips:)
(I will match the class to what you have, so no specific tools are needed)

About Me

Hi!:)
I am a young university student in The Hague, and have lived here for the last two years. Originally I am German/Namibian, which is why both German and English are my native languages! I have however lived in many different countries, including Namibia, Malawi, Germany and The Netherlands.
I greatly enjoy interacting with people, and am considered a very kind and open person. Some of my hobbies include dancing, painting and basketball. I am curious about anything and everything, but I am currently studying international politics as that was what caught my attention the most :)
I look forward to helping you on your journey to learn the English or German language!

Education

Leiden University (Campus Den Haag): Bachelor of Science in International Relations and Organisations (Graduating in 2021)
W. Gymnasium Tübingen (Germany): Abitur (2017) with a GPA of 1,4

Experience / Qualifications

I have spent the better part of the last five years tutoring students in all sorts of fields (Maths, English, German, Biology etc.) and have always helped them achieve their goals with maximum satisfaction!

Reviews (1)

Saniah is really fantastic - my son (14.5 yrs) and I enrolled for '1-1' classes with her, mainly to improve our conversational fluency/ease (our main focus right now), and from even the first few minutes we immediately were at ease, feeling relaxed and open in trying and warming up our German. Saniah kept us challenged, yet not at a frustrating level, and thus very engaged, and was patient in correcting us and helping us to explore the interesting conversations that came up over the two hours of the lesson. Saniah is a very well informed and thoughtful person, with an international and well-travelled background, and we managed to cover a lot of ground exploring interesting and current topics; she also gave us great German book/movie recommendations, plus followed up with adding extra vocab lists and assignments if we wished. We have had only one lesson so far, but are very much looking forward to the next one - certainly exceeded expectations and very happy with the outcome.
Have you always wondered how to write the perfect essay? Or perhaps, has the global pandemic caused your curriculum to be changed, and you now have to suddenly hand in a lot more term papers and other academic creations? Then this class is for you and can help improve your academic writing skills! There are plenty of tips and tricks out there, and I am here to help you not only learn about them but to put them to good practice. Be it referencing or expanding your vocabulary or improving the structures of your papers: it can all be learned! This class is preferably for a single student, however groups may apply as well. I intend to create a productive learning environment, whereby you as the student will be practicing a lot so that your progress is permanent and you can easily apply your new knowledge in class. You will also learn more about common mistakes you may be making and how you can easily avoid making them in the future. If this sounds like a promising deal to you, don't hesitate to reach out! Note: this class is for academic writing in the English language (not German).
With our world growing to be more connected by the day, English has become an essential language in all areas of life. Whether you wish to find a job, travel or simply consume news, English is an asset. I offer individual tutoring sessions or classes in small groups, as preferred by the students. The lessons will be tailored to your personal goals: do you want to learn the basics? Do you need someone to practice speaking with? Or would you like to improve your writing skills (academic or otherwise)? Anything can be arranged!
German is a language which, while spoken in comparatively few countries, is an immense asset to any person looking to live or work in another country at some point in their lives. While it has the reputation of being a cold and difficult language, I strongly believe that there are many beautiful things about it and encourage anyone with a bit of interest to try and learn it! As such, I offer private tutoring sessions for any level of German, and in any form: they can be one on one, or you can contact me with a friend or a group! Depending on your goals, the class will be tailored to focus on achieving them: if you need to practice speaking, writing, reading - that's what we will do!

Find yourself painting with me. Painting/Sketching/Graphics design for Kids
Life is an art. It is a fact that Painting/Sketching improves concentration, helps relieve from stress and makes the person more productive in everything they do. I am a young artist from India. I could teach Acrylic painting, Watercolor painting, Glass painting and sketches. Also, I teach kids improve their sketches to digital painting using Adobe Creative suite. I prefer to teach kids as they need more patience and attention and of course fun. Contact me for more information.

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.

Arts and Crafts for Mental Wellbeing - Children Age 7-12
In this ongoing Art & Wellbeing For Kids course, students will engage in exercises in drawing, painting, collage, and more. These art projects will develop their artistic abilities, while helping them develop tools to maintain mental wellbeing. Your student will create art that they're proud of, and along the way learn tools to express their emotions, reflect on their feelings, and build their confidence. All abilities and skills are welcome! This class should leave your student feeling accomplished and relaxed each week. The art projects I lead are specifically designed to develop self esteem, self reflection, a diverse emotions vocabulary, and resilience. My teaching methodology is a unique blend of teaching technical art skills with a focus on reflective processes. The creative process helps children express themselves in a non-verbal medium that reflects their emotional state. Engagement with the arts has also been proven to increase confidence and self esteem. I cultivate a safe and supportive learning environment in which students feel comfortable asking questions and sharing with the group. In each live class meeting, I will go step-by-step through the art project. Students will have the chance to ask me questions if needed and also have the chance to share their artwork with the class once it is complete. Students are encouraged to work within a dedicated sketchbook to create a portfolio of artwork. Students can join this on-going class at any time and will begin working in their sketchbook during their first class with me. Students will have the opportunity to interact with me during class for support as needed, as well as talk and share with other students.
