I've talked a lot to people that were buying my lessons, and it brought me to the idea of launching a full course for beginners that would guide them through the process of creating a painting from scratch - so they'd know how to approach the idea, how to plan a painting, key steps, the whole process.
I published two painting courses in 2021, and I am planning to do more (if you're reading this in 2025, it means I've been so busy since then, I forgot to update this text :))
After having talked to over a 100 students in that first year, I realised that my mission there was not so much as to teach them the actual painting skills, but to help them learn TO LEARN. Point their attention to the things that would guide them further. Help them shake off the anxiety and show where to look for confidence. Because that's the path I walked myself. I do know what it's like to be TRYING on your own, at home, with all life distractions around you, and the world not taking you seriously.
I know what it's like to be passionate about something and making efforts to grow in that direction. That's what helps me understand the needs of my students and answer them.
