About Me

I am a mother with a background in the visual arts, I have been sharing my love of Printmaking and Painting with my kids, Making art doesn't have to be a hard process. Art-making helps kids with their emotional connections, motor skills and creative problem-solving.

Painting Instruction:

• Taught children to hold a paintbrush freely and use a variety of brushes and strokes
• Introduced different papers and how to prepare/use them - tables, easels, or taped down
• Instructed how to blend colours and paint shapes using a different techniques (wet-wet, wet-dry, crayons & colour, salt on watercolour)
• Took children into nature to paint the environment around them - brought in special techniques for awareness when children are effected by nature such as raindrops
• Prepared rooms and tables for the class and made sure of all supplies and possible extra resources we might use
• Showed children how their own feelings and thoughts come into their paintings
• Incorporated stories, movies, poems, songs, other art or paintings to generate creativity
• Used musical instruments and classical music to help children paint
• Also taught painting on sidewalks, stones, shells, windows
• Encourage children to discover new texture in their own painting from the environment
• Displayed children's work, printed it, framed it to acknowledge each child and
their work

Interpersonal:

• Took time to get to know each child and their strengths to develop trust and create openness
• Encouraged learning between students and from each other so they can learn new styles and develop understanding
• Worked with each child to develop their own painting book from cut-outs, drawings, paintings and photos as well as attached items such as leaves, fabrics or papers
• Made relationships with parents, answered their questions and gave feedback about their child
• Professional with all other staff, departments and co-workers, help out wherever needed
