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.

Drawing, Painting, and Fine Arts classes for beginners, advanced students, adults, and art admirers
The freedom of creativity is the most attractive way of self expression. However, to achieve the mastery to utilise consciously and productively this freedom, with both joy and confidence, with value and satisfaction, you need to have the 'tools' and attain certain skills to guide, facilitate, and uncover your potential. A grate achievement could not be done without breaking the rules, but to break the rules convincingly and doubtlessly, you first need to learn, acknowledge, and understand their natural laws and traditions. Therefore, I am inviting to my tutorial classes, where online or in person, on beginner or advanced level, you will meet and learn the basic and most important skills of Drawing and Painting systematically through observation, will practice and experiment to fully master a medium or a technique, will support your practice with Art and Colour theory, Perspective, and History of Art, in order to start easily drawing yourself, interpreting a favourite scene or a subject on a paper or canvas, and will create you diverse and appealing collection of artworks with attention, imagination, and excitement.

Drawing and sketching for Arts and Design subjects
Being able to draw successfully and in detail is an important part of any design course. I aim to help you improve your drawing skills but also helping you develop a specific style that fits the subject you want to focus on. I can also help you expand your drawing skills outside your comfort zone. This will hopefully help you learn to overcome any obstacles or issues you may come across in the future. If you are in GCSEs or A-level I can also help you get higher grades or any achieve any goals you have. I will focus on free hand drawing however I can help in painting, modeling and graphic design if you would like.

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.

Fine arts and mixed media - Drawing, paiting, sculpture, printmaking, and more.
Are you a new aspiring artist trying your hand at creating artwork for the first time? Or do you want to improve your skills with valuable advice on your practice perhaps in preparation for a course of study or to perfect your technique? Contemporary art offers a wide range of possibilities and mediums. Through over eleven years of studying and practicing Fine Arts, I have acquired a deep love and appreciation for traditional art techniques such as traditional technical painting and drawing, and mixed media sculpting but also enjoyed experimenting with uncountable numbers of other unconventional media integrating them with contemporary languages. My course will help you improve your skills or learn from scratch how to get drawings, sculptures and paintings according to your goals.

Jeanne
Student in art offers courses around the arts, for young and old!
My artistic practice revolves around sound, image and photography. I am familiar with artistic activities that are suitable for young and old. I did babysitting for almost six years during which time I made films, albums and plays with the children I looked after. I am studying my national art diploma (DNA) at the Beaux-Arts in Marseille, which allows me to have access to all kinds of materials and spaces to create and nourish myself. My lessons would really revolve around your desire, that of your child. Searching together for what we might like, transmitting the history of art, supporting the school course around this theme. I am curious, patient, handy and inventive!

Individual artistic lessons – professional, individual
Finding your own artistic expression or access is an experimental adventure, because everyone brings different requirements and talents. These first need to be thoroughly examined and then developed in a targeted manner – but also with great sensitivity. It doesn't matter whether you want to learn a certain technique or theoretically underpin and classify your previous work, whether you are primarily interested in self-knowledge and the discovery of your creative potential, or whether you want to gain more access to and fundamental knowledge of contemporary art - whatever is always your concern, I am happy to support you. As a busy academic artist who has been working professionally for a good twenty years, I can convey numerous techniques in the areas of painting, graphics, sculpture and performance. In an initial discussion, we analyze the personal reasons for your artistic interest and any artistic goals. Accordingly, I develop an individual curriculum that suggests both practical and content (eg literature tips) - a range of courses from which you alone can choose, because only you can ultimately know where the journey should go. Arrange an initial consultation with me in my studio in the 6th district in Vienna or via Skype. I look forward to meeting you!
