13 years of teaching experience in art with normal children in a international school environment and also 10 years of working experience coaching special needs children and young adults with learning differences. Currently working full-time as art educator to special needs children and adults in my own art studio. I also coach young children in illustration work for picture book making.
Interactive coaching. I will always get ideas and suggestions from children about their interest and preferences especially for those who are able to add on their own ideas before i give anything directly during my lesson. I enjoy a lot of communications and feedbacks about their creation and each student must be able to to develop their own uniqueness in their work. There is no mistake in creating art therefore every child is given the opportunity to find their style eventually.
