If you live in Brussels and want to learn more about art then this is the right place for you to do so. Everyone is welcome, no matter what kind of background, race or ethical belief you have. You do not need to have any prior knowledge about art to be able to attend and enjoy my classes and activities.
Obviously, as this is an English-speaking organisation, I tend to attract a lot of members from the expat community here in Brussels. But as long as you are able to understand English at an upper-intermediate level you are welcome to join us and should have no problems following and participating in any of the activities.
I am a certified art teacher with a master's degree in fine arts and art history. Close to 20 years of teaching experience give me a good understanding of how to translate the language of art for the general public while using a fun and interactive approach.
My friends say that I am enthusiastic, lively, sociable, a little crazy (I sincerely hope they mean that in a good way) and know how to talk about art in a manner that is comprehensible for everyone. I acquired my teaching experience in several countries, so far those being Germany, the UK, the United States and Belgium, of course.
Since October 2015 I provide practical art classes for adults in English. They take place during the week on Tuesday evenings. Besides, I set up art visits where we simply meet up, visit a certain show or exhibition together and go for lunch or a drink afterwards. I also organize guided tours and a lot of other cultural and art-related activities in Brussels and surroundings. The size of each group is generally limited to a maximum of 10-15 people, depending on the activity so that I can be sure of a very intensive and personal approach.
Currently and next to my job here at Art for Everyone I work as an artist, independent guide at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels and I am an art teacher at a Flemish secondary school where I teach fine arts and art history.
watch me live!
