As an educator, I endeavor to facilitate students’ discovery of what is most mysterious in their world and introduce them to methods to relate, question, and make connections with it. Most facilitations include experiences of practice and play.
Practice and play are self-perpetuating actions, actions that lead to the discovery of mysteries and the questioning of the established rules in our world, causing a constant movement between the why? and the why not? Questioning starts an engine, and practicing is the vehicle. I hope through teaching I can provide a platform for young artists to discover they have all the keys to set their own journey in motion, to wonder, search and ask questions of the world around them.
