Teaching Philosophy

“My teaching philosophy is to let the student experiment and become connected with their first creative approach. I always encourage them to explore the materials used or change perspectives to have different results. I also remind them that every art work is unique, but the process of being involved is what makes students grow artistically and open their minds to creativity.”
