As an educator in the arts I want to inspire students to think, create and perform. I believe that everyone has the potential to be creative and therefore I want to help harness this creativity in any way possible. By creating safe, educational spaces that assist in engineering the imagination and developing students’ individualism, I hope to open their minds and widen their horizons.
As an artist myself, I understand how important it is to be able to relate to the art you’re creating. Therefore I want to be able to make learning accessible, relevant, fun, thought-provoking and meaningful for each individual I teach. I want to encourage my students to truly connect with their artistic sensibilities and explore art in an authentic way.
Furthermore, I want to instil passion for creative thinking in a diverse range of students. I believe that showcasing creative thinking and highlighting its symbiosis with academia rather than its exclusivity will develop students’ passion for lifelong learning.
