working experience


2014 - present

Art course for children Age 6-11 years old. In my art classes I aim to open up and encourage the natural curiosity and playfulness that children hold. Throughout the course different materials and methods are introduced as well as artistic / philosophical concepts and historical moments.  Those amounts to the individual development, creativity as a whole and the appreciation of art.
