How did you get started teaching?
Ever since I was young, I loved teaching and imparting knowledge and techniques with others. Back then, it was playing with my younger siblings. I noticed that there was no wrong way to make art, yet a lot of adults critiqued and judged. I quickly learned that this was not the approach to stimulating and enhancing creativity in others. I have since been passionate about teaching creativity combined with mindfulness.
