Art is an understanding of the world and people. When the artist lives in this world, he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing researcher.
There is a unique role for artists and creative types in this new era. Living as an artist, with open eyes and open hearts, as speakers of truths and angles of hope, is an important principle in my work as an artist and teacher in painting. I want my students to let go of this world and make sense of events and feelings and then through their artworks help people open their eyes and see the truth ahead of them, as a way to a better future. An artist helps people to see the world.
Over the years, I have worked pedagogically with both adults and children. I start my courses with 10 important rules in painting that every good artist should follow. The theory can be a useful tool for beginner artists, afterwards students can apply their own style, media, material and start their own journey. Painting is a mechanical skill – with effort and applied practice, anyone can learn to be competent.
It is a great pleasure for me to work with young people and see them safe and happy about their fine creative creations. Working with young people is a journey for me where I meet creative young people. The journey begins with teaching them basic principles in interior design and art that can give them experience and the ability to develop further, seek their styles and techniques.
