I’ve taught arts and crafts at an elementary school in Norway for 17 years. I am commited to the fact that students need to have some basic knowledge and experience before they can develop their own artistic expression. I have taught in many different subjects such as ceramics, woodwork, textile, painting, graphics and drawing. I also think it is exciting to use other materials like spun cotton balls, foam paper, wool etc.
I think it is important that all students will be able to make a product they can be proud of. All my projects are designed with good explanations for both students and teachers. It should be fun to learn new techniques and become familiar with new materials.
Yet to be added
I graduated lecturer in arts and crafts at the University of Oslo in 1997.
In autumn 2016, I launched an educational program called "Artige tips til KH-timen" in Norway. (Fun tips for the ART-lesson) It is a series that consists of eight booklets in various categories such as woodwork, ceramics, textiles, materialmix, other materials, drawing, painting/graphics and wall decoration. It is these projects that has been translated into English so I can share them with the "whole world".
