About Me

I am an artist living and working in the Netherlands. In my current art practice, I focus on artistic research, writing, video, collaborative work and installation.

I enjoy teaching and sharing skills with people who are interested in art at any level. I love to teach foundation skills as well as skills in navigating applications for art programs and portfolio building since I know this can be challenging.

I am also open to teaching classes that focus more closely on a specific type of drawing, or sculpture. Please feel free to send me a message if you are interested in something in particular.

Education

I have a Bachelor degree in Sculpture from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, 2015
I recently graduated with a Master's in Fine art from Hogeschool for de Kunsten Utrecht, 2020

Experience / Qualifications

I have experience teaching children and adults with disabilities. I was a teaching assistant at a university in sculpture classes for 2 years as well!

Love working with her :)
This class is an opportunity to begin to build an art portfolio, or to improve your portfolio and/or applications for art schools/universities. My goal is to help students who are interested in improving artistic skills and/or to mentor students who are looking to get into an art program. Depending on your needs, you'll learn a variety of techniques and skills from drawing basics, paintings, photography, color theory to portfolio building/strengthening, developing titles, captions and descriptions for your work, reviewing different applications for art universities or other opportunities, and more. All levels of art experience are welcome!
This class is for those interested in getting started in printmaking from their home! Gelatin printing is a very fun, easy, non-toxic method to create beautiful and unique images. Gelatin is the traditional material for this method, but can be vegan using agar instead (you can state your preference). A plate of gelatin is created which becomes the surface to hold the ink. Different objects, fabrics, utensils, shapes can be used to create patterns and images in the print. This class can be done in a set of 3 1 hour classes (preferably 3 days in a row), but the class timing can be adapted and can be extended depending on the desire.. In the first class you will learn how to make the gelatin plate and care for it, and start to learn about different techniques. The second class you will begin to print. You will learn how to use the gelatin plate and ink and will try a few different techniques and surfaces to print on. In the third class you will learn some more advanced techniques and applications for the gelatin printing. After this you'll be an expert and can print at home whenever you want! For children, this class will need to be done in person, or if doing an online class will need the help of an adult to make the gelatin plate.

Kenza
Dot mandala painting class to learn how to create unique designs on canvas and other media
I suggest an art therapy session to disconnect you from the stress of everyday life; and immerse yourself in meditative art. The technique of dot-painting or point painting is an artistic activity recognized for its anti-stress virtues. It is an art accessible to all that allows you to nurture your creative side, improve self-confidence, and which also helps develop communication and exchanges. Just like during a yoga or meditation practice; we return our attention to the present moment, to what our body and our mind are doing, we observe and feel our sensations at the moment T without analyzes or judgments; we just refocus. You have understood it: it is about eliminating positive thoughts and welcoming new and colorful energies! The choice of colors and patterns allows the mind to refocus and forget the worries of everyday life.

Drawing lessons: comic, cartoon, manga, any style and level
The classes are completely practical, focused on whatever the student requires. The first class is to establish the pupil's level, giving him or her some information and advice and proposing a few exercises to practice. From the second class, we start correcting the exercises from the last session, adding new information, and proposing more exercises. Learning how to draw is not easy, but this method is the most comfortable way. Moreover, we start drawing whatever the pupil wants, which motivates him/her to continue drawing. The lessons can be about character design, anatomy, perspective, backgrounds, line art, color, storytelling, comics, and illustration. It can be traditional, digital, or both.

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.

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

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,...

Art class: face proportions, Male body, face in 3/4 view and side views.
This will cover the proportions of the face and tell you how to draw a face in the side perspective and 3/4 perspective. this will not go into detail into the facial features, just proportions of the face in detail for a cheap price. After this lesson, you will know how to draw proportions and the face at 3/4 and the side view of a face. I specialize in art and graphic design. my goal is to help students learn to draw stress-free.
