Online Art Mentoring

Customized Drawing, Painting and Mural Painting course

The Online Art Mentoring is a long distance learning from the comfort of your home at the time that most suits your needs. You will be able to practice drawing, painting and/or mural painting at your own pace, getting systematic instructions and feedbacks on the art project you are working on. 

Note that, because of the nature of the one-to-one mentoring, each student will be taken great care and time in personalised critiques and lessons.

This is a most affordable and time flexible learning practice which requires self-discipline and commitment under the instructor's judgement. The students will need to be open to follow and work under guidance and critique to be able to reach goals and experience art technique and creativity improvement. 

You will learn in a non-standardised way the tools to read any image and analyse it with your eyes. You will understand more about perspective, proportions, colours, composition, contrast, volume, shading, etc... and feel able to understand what you are drawing and painting, take decisions and face challenges. These tools are important to learn in order to go beyond them and find your artistic voice. 

"Art is something that comes from the individual. The way I teach respects the genuine creative process of each student. I will teach you how to look at things and some basic art technique. I will rarely post a video of the making of a complete painting on the Member's page, since I want you to find smart solution to reach the effect you have in mind. On the Member’s Page you will find very short videos of basic techniques and special video requests. 

The core of this course is the One-to-One customised Mentorship. My guidance will help you achieve your goals in the simplest way I know, observing your work and giving you weekly feedbacks based on your submitted work. To help you recognise your best skills and to improve what doesn’t come as easy at first, practicing self-discipline and commitment. 

I’m a self-taught artist and I had to teach myself everything to a professional level. I observed many painters and worked alongside them for years. I got something good from each one of them, which made me improve my eye first and then my technique.

My role is to help you being the best painter you can be and to teach you how to look at things and trust your eye and hand. Practicing in a non-standardised way and constantly learning from your mistakes, which are necessary to grow from."
