DRAWING AND PAINTING CLASSES

Are you thinking of recovering the pleasure of drawing?

Miralma’s Painting and Drawing Courses consist of reduced groups of a maximum of four students. The working space in the workshop is a warm room with natural light and a big table where students can create. Music is played to accompany the work creating rhythm and harmony.

Classes follow a course methodology, but are personalized based on each student’s needs. Is student is nourished by the group and participates in all of the creative processes as a unit, creating an enriching artistic bond. The course’s content is flexible, depending on the group’s characteristics.

The fundamental objective of Miralma’s Drawing and Painting Courses is for each person to discover their own artistic expression, making drawing a tool for freedom. My experience as a professor in the University of Chile allows me to guarantee the rapid evolution as an artist and an immense personal satisfaction.

DRAWING AND PAINTING COURSE IN MADRID

A new course where through painting and drawing classes, intuition and creative capacity are the protagonists.

Painting workshop for kids

The painting and drawing workshop for kids is a place to play with tools for graphic expression. The lessons that are offered are based on the enthusiasm that each child discovers for different drawing techniques.

We work while using different stimuli like music, emotions, shadows, silence, dreams, movement, history, and memories, and we utilize them as tools for expression through free sketch and wet and dry techniques.

The Creative Paint Workshop allows for children to create a connection with their creativity through simple designs. This helps them to get closer to their dream world, representing their intimate space, manifesting their capacity to be expressive and reinforcing their self-esteem.

I accompany them in the creative process using imagination and the perception of our own reality while valuing their creative efforts over aesthetics. In the creative process, there are no comparisons. Each relationship is highly personalized.

The school – The Workshop is safe haven from freedom of artistic expression. The attendance of the child is, in itself, an act of creativity.

Monographic Workshops

A monographic workshop introduces a specific theme that is developed during a short and intense period of time: the self-portrait, Nature and Light, Hands, the Human, the City, etc.

The dynamic of the workshop is a journey whose origin begins with the group as a whole in the ‘creation’ state and continues with ideas that connect you to the act of drawing and creating.

Chants are later introduced to help facilitate the creative process, pushing you to find the identity of each stroke and to increase your perceptual development.

Workshops can be held in a variety of places: towns, villages, shelters, large houses, schools, institutes, universities, retirement spaces, etc. Any place that allows for lodging and has a space to hold the Workshop.

Workshops can be requested by both institutions and individuals.

The duration of each workshop time depends on the request but generally lasts between two to three days, six to eight hours each day. Each Workshop is designed and prepared beforehand by in the School – Workshop Lucía Espinós and the interested group.

The main focus of this intensive course is creation by creation, understanding this process as an existential act. The development of the work in series is intended to provide the artist with the tools to tell graphically what he or she has experienced.

Creativity now becomes an inherent need of the individual. The experience itself, understood as an experimental process until a result is obtained, iscthe very act of creation.

It is an experience recorded through a series of drawings, which can be seen as a material object that exhibits the perception of our experiential journey. The series becomes of value in time because the perspective of ourselves makes us aware of our creative abilities.

This methodology offers the possibility of a collective development, enhancing intellectual curiosity and allowing us to access the inner world of emotions and feelings.

The dynamic of the work involves the body and offers a unique identity: “The human being is not the center of the universe, the center of the universe is life.” Rolando Toro Araneda.

It involves a free approach to the world of the senses. It works the intuition, loss of personal prejudices and pre-established aptitudes. It gives the artist the possibility of finding a place of expressive and functional freedom in the creative act.

The arts, in general, link us to the world and culture, and trigger sensitivity in our character. Concretely, the methodology that I implement, links us to our body which is mediator of the psyche. It is representative our relationship with the world around us.

All of our senses – sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste, work as filters that tend to a transformation and connect the creative instinct with the ability to materialize this nature.
