Sumi-e At Taller La Griega with Teofanú Calzada

Teachers need teaching too!

I want to share with you a workshop I went to at my friend Carmen La Griega’s artist studio. Carmen invited Teofanú Calzada to run this exclusive workshop. You can see all the details here: https://tallerlagriega.com/cursos-y-horarios-2020/

WHAT IS SUMI-E?

Eastern Asian style ink painting has a name and that name is Sumi-e, pronounced (Soo-Mi- Eh). This technique is something I had never tried before. I have seen this style often in prints in Japanese and Chinese artworks but I had no idea about the creation or specialised technique that was being displayed.

Monochromatic images are created using the brush to make shapes and impressions of the form of the subject. It looks very simple and is very effective. There are strong aspects of it as an extension of calligraphy.

Ando Hiroshige – famous for the The Great Wave

I thought as I have plenty of experience with watercolours I would find this class easy. I was wrong. Perhaps it was a little tricky as the class was given in Spanish language so maybe I didn’t catch all the instructions. It was my fault, I had thought my grasp of the language would be sufficient, but really the specific words in the art vocabulary were not in my range. Next time I will ask for more guidance in english as there was plenty of time to ask for help.

Anyway, three quarters into the class when I started painting with my own techniques Teofanú Calzada tutor came over and showed me a few sumi-e techniques and explained in English, I caught up enough to be able to find a flow in this new style I was there to learn!

WHAT I LEARNT

There is a balance that can come from understanding that the brush has a mind or energy of its own, just as much as I have a mind and energy of my own. When I give power to the brush as an equal, rather than a tool to do my bidding, we, together can make something beautiful. Sumi-e for me was the learning curve that as an artist I need to trust my body and my tools. I must switch my mind off to allow the brush and my body to show me something more than I am capable of imagining.

THE CLASS

The table set up

When I arrived at the studio, the table was set up beautifully. The ink blocks were laid carefully on a plate, offered up next to a stand with the special Japanese paint brushes hanging like ornaments. Each student had their own ink holder, a dark grey almost black dish made of stone with a reservoir for the ink. There was also a small shallow plate to test the blackness of the ink, a brush, the class overview and a small glass of water were ready for each of us. And as you can see below a lot of tissue to mop up spills or use to blot the brushes when they were too wet.

The ink blocks on a stand, decorated with Japanese writing and pictures.

We spent the first 15 minutes of the class making our ink. We were shown how to pour a little of the water in to the ink holder, then carefully and with time, we ground the ink block into the water on the shallow area of the well. In Spanish I caught that we needed to put our intention into the process of making our ink. It seemed to be very therapeutic to spend time preparing this black liquid.

When the ink was ready, we started with all the practises of making leaves, orchids, chrysanthemums and something to do a with a Phoenix. I will ask more questions about this in the future!

I was so engrossed in my artwork, I didn’t take the break in the middle of the class! I also didn’t take many pictures during the class although I did manage to take a video towards the end when I had completed my final piece – an art work on proper sumi-e paper displaying all the techniques we had learnt in the class.

A video of us all painting

At the end we chose our favourite pieces, either the final piece or something from the practise session, to display on the mirror so we could all appreciate each other’s styles.

The final exhibition of our collective artworks!
My final painting to show all the techniques I learnt at the workshop

I loved this class. It was challenging and exciting. There were parts I wanted to burst into angry tears because of my frustration (I thought the brush was broken – it wasn’t broken, I was disconnected from it) and then there were parts I was floating in a world of flow where me, the ink and the brush were making something cosmic.

I’ve discovered there is plenty I don’t know and I am now becoming an intrepid explorer into the far east, packing just my paintbrush and leaving my expectations of myself at home.

I’m going again, if you would like to join me, book directly with Carmen by calling her or emailing her: tel: (+34) 655 17 43 59  –  (+34) 914 29 61 07 or email: carmenlagriega@gmail.com

Private Art Classes

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…

Instructional, motivational, represented well and well thought out.

I did a vision board workshop with Aliya which was fantastic. Aliya is absolutely lovely and I look forward to participating in more of her workshop. 1000% recommendable 😍💖😊

The instructor, Aliya, is amazingly involved in the creation process. She encouraged me to try new drawing techniques in a really nice and relaxed environment

Christian VP, Transportation Engineer

Me encanta como Aliya te ayuda a salir de la técnica y disfrutar el proceso del dibujo como un medio terapéutico.

“I love how Aliya helps you get out of the technique and enjoy the process of drawing as a therapeutic medium.”

WHY CHOOSE PRIVATE?

There are so many reasons why private art classes are a great idea!

  1. Personal attention means you can progress much faster in developing your skills. You accelerate your learning with one on one tuition.
  2. You are free to discuss and ask questions as the class is about your personal needs and requirements.
  3. Personalised classes are tailored to what you want to learn, no set syllabus means you can pick and choose what you want to explore.
  4. Working with a therapeutic art life coach means you are encouraged to create not only your personal style of art but also to try new techniques to find out what you really enjoy doing.
  5. Everyone learns in different ways so private art classes can be adapted to suit the way that you learn.

WHERE ARE THE CLASSES?

Classes can take place almost anywhere!

  1. In my private art studio close to Embajadores.
  2. At your home or studio, provided that travel time and expenses are reimbursed and you have already had one class with me in my studio.
  3. In outdoor spaces if the weather permits and travel time and expenses are reimbursed.
  4. Over video call or similar.

WHAT IS NEEDED?

  1. A willingness to learn!
  2. English language (my spanish is improving!)

WHAT CAN BE LEARNED?

My background is in non-objective artwork, a style that has no basis in this reality. Over the past 20 years I have explored many styles of art, my favourites now include illustration with watercolour, life art with colour, collage and acrylic paint pouring. As I have the qualification of Therapeutic Art Life Coach, I very much enjoy exploring the personal and unique creative styles that my students and clients develop. Often, I help them discover their own talents, mainly by trying different styles and approaches to the same subject. Whatever you would like to learn, if I can help I will. If I can’t help, I will find you a person who can.

HOW TO BOOK:

It’s very easy to book a private art lesson with me. Fill in the request form below. I will reply and we will confirm a date and time to meet. The first lesson always is the quickest so I ask you book at least 2 hours. After that lessons can be booked at your preference up to 8 hours in one day, depending on the project.

I also politely request that you include any information that you feel that might be helpful for me to be able to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to learn in. If you have any body health issues such as nut allergies, mental health issues such as depression or any spiritual beliefs such as veganism, please let me know so I can accommodate these during our time together.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

I charge a flat rate of €15/hour for private art tuition in english at my studio close to Embajadores, Madrid, Spain.

For video calls the rate stays the same between 9am and 6pm Monday to Friday in my timezone in Spain. If your time zone is different we can discuss the rates.

Art supplies, travel expenses, travel time are not included. These can be discussed and agreed, then added to your bill.

I am registered as autonomo in Spain and can provide a IVA (VAT) invoice for you at your request.

If you are interested in Therapeutic Art Life Coaching, please get in contact so we can discuss a course of classes and prices.

Life Art Classes In Madrid

Our next class of interest is on the 15th of February, Two Models with poses inspired by great romantic works of art! Buy tickets in advance to save your space!

What is it Life Art?

Simply explained, Life Art is nude figure drawing. A model poses for a set amount of time so that artists can practise drawing the human body.

Join us and see our calendar of events on MeetUp or Facebook.

When, Where and With Who?

Members of the Amazing Art Society meet almost every Saturday, from 19.00 to 21.00 in a venue in Madrid. The venue changes so keep updated by joing our group on MeetUp.

The class is relaxed with constant tuition and updates on time left in each pose. The two hours includes a 15 minute break to stretch, compare artwork and chat.

After class we stay and socialise, discuss our art and share stories of our week. Sometimes we play games to have fun, other times we just chat.

I had a wonderful experience doing one of the events with Amazing Art Society. It was fun, engaging, and I learned a lot! Definitely do one of Aliya’s events, you’ll enjoy it a lot! She’s knowledgeable, well-prepared and makes sure everyone has a great time. Looking forward to another one.

Blue Monday – Banish it with your Brushes!

Today is Blue Monday, one of the most depressing days of the whole year. You can read about it here or just take my word for it.

How about combating it with your artwork? I often turn to my paint brushes and bright colours when I need to focus on something other than the reality I am presented with.

I choose to spend my time doing things which bring me happiness and joy as there are far too many tasks, people and tv shows that want to rob you of your time and your positivity.

Put pencil to paper, sketch something from life and then change it into something magical.

For example, my salt and pepper-mill cats and the bull door-stop are a sweet collection of useful animals. I find it easier to draw from a photo sometimes so I placed my friends together, took a photo and started sketching in my book with a 2B pencil.

Step by Step Illustration

As always, any mistakes, I leave them in as a reminder that we all fail sometimes and it’s not actually a big deal in the end. Notice the bull has two tails from where I had to move it.

After I’m happy with the composition, I start to add the colour, in this instance with water colours.

Layers and panels help to bring the painting to life and slowly but surely my focus becomes clearer on the present moment and the practise of creating.

Adding a background can be one of the most imaginative aspects of a painting. Often people start with a back ground however I don’t often know when I want to place my subjects until I meet them in colour. I also want my subject in the foreground to be free from pencil marks of the landscape.

Inspired by the friend that gave me the bull, I chose to place my painted friends in a the desert. Looking at a few images on Google helped me to add the Hand of the Desert in Chile to the background and I chose the time of day to depict. apparently it’s most beautiful there at night time when you can see the stars.

The reason I’m sharing this illustration technique with you is to offer you a way out of the Blue Monday of January, a way to banish any negative fogginess with your brushes.

Happy Arting. xx

En-guard Blue Monday! You are Banished by the power of the Paintbrush!

I will be having an exposition of my work in the next few months, please follow me on Facebook and Instagram here for more news.

The Four Houses – Vision Board Technique (2020)

Due to the success and positive feedback from the vision board classes held in January, I thought you might like to know a little bit more about what it was all about! I will be holding one of these workshops every month from now on. If you have already been to a Four Houses Technique Workshop, please comment on this post with your thoughts and feel free to come back to a class, to update your board in good company any time you like!

I did a vision board workshop with Aliya which was fantastic. Aliya is absolutely lovely and I look forward to participating in more of her workshop. 1000% recommendable 😍💖😊

2020 – it begins!

January was host to a fantastic run of three workshops for The Amazing Art Society’s unique vision board technique called The Four Houses.

Based on a way to compartmentalise the four aspects of a balanced life: Health, Connections, Career and Energy Charge, we saw our students plan their boards using their cognitive skills and then furnish their vision board with their creative skills!

Anyone that has ever wondered how to bring more focus and clarity to their life would benefit from spending a few hours with this technique of therapeutic art.

PROUD OF MY STUDENTS:

The workshop includes the learning of the concept of The Four Houses and a start on arranging and attaching images to the vision board. There is a week allocated to keep working on the boards and then encouragement to share the final board created for 2020, 7 days after the workshop took place. I am so proud of my students! Success has already occurred for a few with dance classes, new romantic partners and work opportunities already showing up in my students lives!

Here are some of the completed boards!

CONCEPT:

Imagine you have four houses in your life. Each house is where you go to spend your time when you want different things. For example, when you want to relax on the beach, you go to your house on the coast. Or when you want to complete lots of work, you go to your private office building. Imagine what impact you could create in your life if you could use this compartmentalisation technique to make your vision board true to your life goals.

THE HOUSES EXPLAINED:

Health: You go to this imaginary house when you want to focus on your health. Filled with your favourite gym equipment, maybe a pool because you love to swim, a spinning studio or a steam room and hot tub, this imaginary palace will have everything you enjoy in it, keeping you in good physical and metal health. This house will have a kitchen with the most delicious food you love to eat and that you know is good for you. It is important to focus on healthy options that you enjoy so that you like to visit this house. Furnish it with good habits, good choices and think about who you would like to invite to spend time with you here. In your vision board make sure to use images that reflect these choices.

Career: Firstly, ask yourself, are you happy with your industry and your current projected career? If yes, then the next question is: What do you need to do to be seen as an expert in your field? How can you progress and what steps do you need to take in order to feel like an expert? In other words, how can you be the best example to someone new coming into your work place or industry? If you answered ‘no’ to the ‘are you happy’ question, then start to think about why you don’t enjoy the work anymore. Think about if it is the people around you that have caused this feeling (you could keep the same job but work for another company) or, if it is time to move into a different industry that you feel will be better suited to your new goals for the future. Ask yourself what your career options are. Can you transfer your skills to something else you could enjoy? Use images on your board that display the actions you need to take as well as images that capture what it would be to have achieved these goals.

Connections: This house is your social house, this is where your best friends, family, peers, mentors and trusted confidants live or visit you. What kind of people do you want to be connected with and supported by? It is very important to be open to understanding that you may need to shed some relationships that no longer benefit you. This will make space for the new people that you want to come into your life and for existing relationships to deepen in the way you want. For example, if you want to make friends who are energetic and love nature, then you are likely to meet them in hiking groups. If you want to meet people who enjoy playing video games, you are more likely to meet them online. Go where these people are and you will make these new connections Think about where these types of people are and make sure to focus on using images that capture this in your vision board.

Energy Charge: This is the house you visit when you want to recharge your batteries. This is your play house! Not only when you want to take a break from your career, connections or health, this house has been created in your mind for you to enjoy being you. The question is: What do you do that is not for money, not for status, not because of obligation, not for any purpose or reason, apart from, it makes you happy? This house is to be full of your favourite toys, hobbies and past times. When you spend time in this house, you get to rest your brain from the other parts of your life that require effort into the external environment. This is very important to keep your brain happy and healthy!

If you have any questions or would like more clarification, please get in touch.

HOW:

Take an A4 piece of paper and quarter it. Label each quarter with a house name: health, career, connections and energy charge. Ask yourself the questions in each explanation above. Take your time to use your imagination to create the best possible outcome. Play with your imaginary lottery winnings and really explore the positive options in order to shed your inhibitions and break out a version of your self, free from doubts and with a free spirit. You are invited to imagine anything you want!

When you have completed your written plan, start searching through the images you have collected and make sure to match words and ideas to the images you want to place on your vision board. This is where you may notice how easy it is to be attracted to images that are nothing to do with your plan! Stay on track and set asie any images that do not appear to correspond to your plan, you can do something different with these in the future.

When you’ve collected around half the images you think you will need, take a larger piece of paper to make your vision board on, I use A3 tracing paper. Start to arrange the images that are in line with words and ideas on the plan, onto the second piece of paper to make a nice layout.

When you are sure every concept written on the plan has a corresponding image on the vision board, stick everything to the second page, NOT ON THE PLAN ITSELF. At the end of the exercise, you will have an image vision board which reflects the plans for your Four Houses that is bursting with the energy you want to have in the coming year as well as your written plan to keep on the back side of your board.

Tape the written plan to the back of your board so when you want reminding of what each image represents to you, it is close to hand. Place your vision board somewhere you can see it everyday.

The Four Houses Vision Board Technique, The Amazing Art Society Unique Art Classes

WHEN:

The beginning of a year is always a good time to make plans. Whenever the seasons change is a good time to make plans. Whenever you have a really bad day is probably the most brilliant time to sit down and plan a better future for yourself. Basically any time you really want to take control of your life, do this exercise.

I will be holding a Four Houses Vision Board class every month. You can see the most up to date news on events here.

Whilst waiting for a friend to arrive at a nearby bar I will be holding laughter yoga workshops and art classes in this year, I discovered this library-slash-coffee shop-slash-gallery.

At first glance I assumed it was a book shop, then I noticed it could be a coffee shop only as there were people sitting and drinking coffee, then as my eyes are not tuned into spotting art flyers, I noticed the poster in the window, so this space seems to be a lot of things in one location!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

Walking in to the shop I was met with rows and stacks of shelves covered in books. a real book lovers dream, AND they serve coffee!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

A few tables dotted about the place provided space for guests to sit and read or learn something, a couple of customers seemed to be learning languages, which reminds me I need to practise my Spanish more!

Librería Café La Fugitiva: Calle de Santa Isabel, 7, 28012 Madrid

The artwork is on display high up above the shelves and on the walls, the ones not covered in books! These bright collage pieces are playful and bright, some are portraits with a childlike aspect of the character of those portrayed.
