In my coursework I give great importance to the personality of the student and his love for the art.
The course is a two-way relationship between the student and the teacher.
I give great importance to the sketch, because I consider it the Foundation of creation.
When the student reflects clearly the form and the stage, the light and the shade, the shade on other views objects, then can be able to pass to the study of color.
The base in artistic expression is the sketch, because is the only way to capture what the student understands from the model.
Traditional painting and the basic principles of art history are the necessary tools that the creator has to assimilate the existing and build his own style of expression, with the distortion or with the abstraction.
The next important stage of my coursework consists in the study and the understanding of colors and the artistic expression.
In this way the students are able with complete freedom to understand currents and trends, but also to produce their own creations.
Because art is to perform the existing, with subjective way.
