Learn How To Write & Publish Your Own Children’s Book

This class is for all aspiring authors who would love to see their own book in print and to develop a passion for creative writing. I will take each student through the whole creative process of producing a book from the initial brainstorming of ideas, to storyboarding, writing, editing, illustration (if desired) and publication.

As a prolific children’s author and illustrator, I specialise in empowering others to write and celebrate their creative talents through the books they produce. I have many years experience in publishing books for other people. This class can be tailored to both children and adults.

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.

In any subject that we are doing, we do need to be creative.

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,...

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 Color 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.

Storytelling. Starting point of a good story or script.
Stories are as old as we are, but if you want to put a story on paper or portray a story, it turns out to be more difficult than talking to your friends. How about now? Not what you tell, but HOW you tell it is the most important. The basics and how to use psychology to write a story, this is what you will learn anyway. Those who want to continue afterwards will learn how to write a script. Fiction or facts, you decide what you want to learn.
