Every child is an arist. The problem is how to remain an atist once we grow up– Pablo Picasso
One thing I love as much as making art is sharing it and teaching it to others. Throughout university I taught art classes to children and youth at my hometown art gallery when I was home over the summer and on breaks. As a teacher, art was by far my favourite subject and my master’s degree was focused on art education.
Once COVID restrictions suddenly closed schools in March 2020, I was asked to teach Grade 9/10 art online for a local high school. It was a challenge doing such a hands on subject online but also a lot of fun and it reminded me how much I love teaching. So I’m always excited whenever an opportunity arises to teach and share art and I hope that I can share ideas, projects, tips and advice and more here with all of you to help encourage and inspire a lifelong love of art.
