Our Philosophy of Art Education
Our goal is to guide students to improve their artistic abilities and afford them the opportunity to express themselves creatively, in a nurturing, safe environment.
We believe an art educator needs to understand the artistic developmental stages of learners/children and that students learn in different ways. This understanding makes it possible to stimulate their imaginations, and equip them with the knowledge and skills to create their art at age-appropriate stages. Students also need to have a clear understanding of the art medium so they may successfully generate new ideas and produce meaningful work along their artistic journey.
We are grateful to have the opportunity to combine our passion for teaching and the the love of art, and pass it on to our students so they may become better artists and more confident in their artistic ability. There is nothing better than to watch them learn and grow.
