Since graduating Bezalel in the year 2000, I have been teaching art.
I was an art guide and teacher in the Israel Museum, Jerusalem, and in the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art. I also taught art in the Jewish school in Newton, near Boston. During the years 2007-2015 I had been teaching painting to adults in my studio.
I learned how to teach painting from two great teachers I had – Dedi Ben Shaul in Bezalel, and Barbara Baum in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
My approach to teaching art is first of all – that everyone can paint and draw, since there is no right and wrong. Secondly, I think a good dialogue between the teacher and the student is essential for the enrichment and development of the student’s skills. Thirdly, a good teacher has the ability to strengthen the student’s confidence.
