Why I Teach

Is there anything better than watching young children create?

Children create with such freedom, they don’t need an end goal like we seem to as adults. They just enjoy the process – it’s a beautiful thing to witness.

I count it a blessing that I can be part of their process. Watching them explore and experiment is a true joy.  Teaching them about the elements of art,  introducing them to different art materials and techniques, then, watching them take off on their own – it’s so rewarding.

It’s why I teach.
