Because I want to show what art can bring us I started this course. It is named ‘no nonsense’ to underline the effective character of the course. With a clear technical background, a few tricks and a totally new way of looking the students learn to make their first steps in the wonderful world of figurative art. It is a practical approach full of discovery. In the course you will learn:

  • How to recognize visually attractive elements in other art works
  • To use these elements in your own work
  • That it is all about overcoming yourself and not others
  • A nice way of making a portrait, a still life or a landscape
  • Having confidence
  • Having fun
  • How to continue learning after the course ends
Student results of two sessions of three hours, showing some interesting and nice differences, even including a fauvistic work.

“Jelle is a very inspiring teacher! The course was nicely balanced in terms of academic foundation and artistic freedom.”

Arnout, student
