Art Education

Very early on during my undergraduate studies, I started running workshops. Eventually, I became a professional art educator, designing and teaching courses for various target groups. In this way, I learned about strengths and weaknesses of art in education. Working with students of various nationalities and cultures, forced me to ask questions about the nature and goals of education in general and art education in particular. My intention is to introduce to both students and clients process-oriented methods of learning that result in more creative solutions. Playfulness, the joy of creation, and the openness to new ideas and experiments are the most important qualities that I offer to my scholars. For more information about my professional experiences please read the FAQs here below.
