Art Teacher

Prestige College

Teaching Art is a  fullfilling experience as I find myself engaging with creative minds. The challenge is always to be able to communicate a creative aspect across, due to its nature, art is usually beyond expression in words. It is the practical aspect I enjoy about teaching art.

I am most inspired when i work with "sidelined" students. Art is a great why for self realisation and confidence boosting.
