The first lesson was really good. Serious and fun at the same time. Very interesting exercises . I am looking forward to the second lesson!
The experience with Xingying was one of consummate professionalism, acute attention to detail, and warm efficiency of time. I was not only impressed but feel extremely lucky and privileged to continue my son’s lessons with her. - She answered all questions and concerns with ease - She provided a detailed list of all the tools needed for a successful lesson - She provided a good space for learning - My son expressed great enthusiasm and excitement for continued learning with her I most of all appreciate that her presence brought out a commitment in my son to desire his learning. I recommend Xingying’s services with the the utmost confidence and faith.
The classes with Xingying are very fun! She places focus on the parts the are important to you and explains all the questions with care and patience. An awesome teacher and an amazing person! :)
Very patient and skilled teacher, highly recommend for begginer artists like me.
Awesome teacher and really competent in what she is doing! Can recommend if you want to start learning mandarin-chinese!

I run private lessons, where all levels are welcome. But if you’re a total beginner then I offer basic classes to help you find the way to get into it. I develop diverse methods of teaching for the students. For the around 5-8 years old kids, I would like to set certain games to play with them, thereby the kids can learn the new language during the interaction and communication. In this way, different media, like color pictures, puppets, or storybooks are essential to make the course very attractive. For the teenager or advanced students, a structuralized teaching content based on scenarios or textbook could help the students to develop their language capacity efficiently in different aspects – listening, reading, speaking, and writing. Besides, I would like to give a deeper perspective for the Chinese- not only learning the language from the textbooks, but also the knowledge of the language, the culture, and the literature. Also, based on your need and situation, we choose different textbooks and make a personal teaching plan for you.

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 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.

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.

Autodesk 3DSMax, logiciel de création tridimensionnelle
3DSMax est l'outil le plus employé dans l''industrie du jeu et de la réalité virtuelle. Il sert à concevoir des images fixes ou animées en mettant en scène des objets 3D dans des univers tridimensionnels. Ceux-ci peuvent aussi être exportés pour des logiciels de réalité virtuelle comme Unity ou Unreal. De fait, tout peut être réalisé graphiquement avec un tel logiciel : Du simple objet manufacturé, en passant par le design, l'architecture, l'urbanisme, jusqu'à la création de personnages de dessin animés ou hyper-réalistes immergés dans des mondes imaginaires ou existants, du compositing vidéo jusqu'à la réalité mixte. C'est donc un outil complet qui comblera l'artiste comme l'amateur de technologie. Aussi de manière évolutive, vous apprendrez à maitriser son interface et produire de manière progressive des objets et des scènes 3D de plus en plus complexes et de plus en plus réalistes.

Design graphic, art director skills, and drawing-painting.
Dans mon cours de dessin, vous passerez d'abord par le dessin d'observation, c'est à dire l'art de voir avant de dessiner car sans observation pas de dessin, puis vous passerez à l'étape suivante de l’expression de soi, de votre propre point de vue par des projets personnels sur des thèmes imposés ou libres, à décider ensemble. J'ai une Licence d'Arts Appliqués à l’Académie Bugeant à Poitiers. (1983), 35 ans de direction artistique dans la communication et 40 ans de dessin non-stop. J'enseigne à l'ECV creative Shools à Nantes depuis 7 ans, chez Brassart depuis 5 ans, chez Efet du groupe Eductive, et chez ISG Luxury depuis 2 ans. Je donne des cours de "rough", une méthode de dessin, de design et de création publicitaire sur papier, avant le passage à l'ordinateur. (Du dessin pur et du dessin typographique ). J'ai une grande habitude de l'échange et du soutien personnalisé de chaque étudiant dans ces écoles. Je peux vous aider pour appréhender et créer via la suite Adobe (Photoshop, illustrator et indesign) que je pratique depuis 25 ans.

TECHNICAL DRAWING from scratch (or from wherever you need)
The TECHNICAL DRAWING takes you by surprise because: - You have to appear for the EBAU this year or next year and you don't see it clearly... - You are doing or plan to do a higher education cycle or a design degree and you do not distinguish between square and bevel... - Although you understand the YouTube tutorials or the solved exercises, when you are going to do them you don't know where to start... I can help you understand what resists you so that you have greater security and, why not, come to enjoy the subject.

Drawing. Develop your innate abilities. We all have them, we just need to encourage ourselves to wake them up.
In my case, drawing was something that I developed as an adult. Until I was 26 I only drew a little house and a tree. I invite you to dare to cross your own threshold. In this drawing course we will learn to look, to let go of our hand, and recognize different types of strokes. We will work on realistic drawing while looking for our own inner drawing. The organic expression. Development of visualization techniques to be able to capture ideas and find our own style.
