Teaching is Art itself. The beauty of teaching is, you get to learn as you teach. Art is very personal to me as I believe it reflects my character; free-spirited. It’s the only subject that allows one to be expressive without judgments. As an Art Educator, opposed to the traditional belief of appreciating works that are seemingly beautiful to the eye, I aim to guide my students to think beyond what is just aesthetically pretty looking. I believe our Arts education should come out from the grading system and move towards nurturing students’ ideas and originality. I want YOU to be truly the master of your artwork. Come join me in my classes and discover yourself through Arts with me.
Coach Maya is a graduate of Visual Communications and has been teaching art for the past 8 years.
