Art teacher that loves to explore in different mediums and help others

Methodology

My teaching method is to help children find their artistic voice from different mediums of art.
Experimenting is my main focus, experimenting is central to the arts, and is frequently used in making connections between the concrete and the abstract. Experimenting requires that students investigate, test, explore, manipulate, solve problems, make decisions, and organize information in hands-on ways. Also I help the students view other artwork by having art discussions in group settings.

Background

I have a Masters degree in Fine Arts. And taught art lessons over 5 years to children that are ages between 5-11. I love watching children turn into little artists, after I teach them that Art is beautiful from the eyes of the beholder.
