My daughter (K.) had her first lesson with Smaranda today and she enjoyed it every much. Smaranda asked questions to understand K.'s preferences and interests so that she can tailor the class accordingly, which also made for a highly enjoyable class. Smaranda took the time to explain things at first and then let K. explore the assignment at her pace. She shared tips and tricks that K. found very useful. All in all a great first lesson, and K. is very much looking forward to the next one.

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

Clases particulares de Grasshopper en Español online
Soy arquitecta, he trabajado durante 7 años utilizando grasshopper en diseño, arquitectura e interiorismo. Aprendí sóla, con la ayuda de internet y sé lo que eso implica, sacrificar fines de semana, noches, festivos y pasarse un día entero para intentar resolver un error muy sencillo que ahora detectaría en medio minuto. Descubrí lo valioso que era poder comentar dudas, hacer preguntas concretas y precisas a una persona de referencia. Esto acorta muchisimo el tiempo de trabajo y de aprendizaje, sin hablar de la frustración que se ahorra uno/a. Tambíen entendí que para aprender, es necesario tener una meta, un proyecto personal, algo que queramos llegar a materializar. Es la única manera de encontrar la motivación y de permitir que todo el conocimiento adquirido se mantenga en el tiempo. Imparto las clases online por skype, desde Murcia y con ficheros compartidos. Si tiene dudas concretas o si quiere empezar a aprender de cero, no dude en escribirme, apostaremos por un trabajo personalizado para conseguir sus metas.

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.
