Welcome to my Artworld!
I'm Katherine, an art educator and art enthusiast.
Welcome to my art world. Originally for Europe, I have worked in International Schools in Moscow, China and Hong Kong.
When it comes to education, I believe that students need to be fully engaged in their subjects to really learn meaningfully. The approaches I use to achieve this are in three parts;
Firstly - I teach the theories, techniques and visual literacy so that students can create and understand.
Secondly, students are given choice. Sometimes it's full choice, sometimes I set a boundary (eg a theme or a medium).
Thirdly, I help students to make connections with their art. This can be done through cross-curricular projects and personal, real life connections.
