Hey, I'm Joey 

 

I am an 'Artist' (so they say) or  Art teacher...

 

I studied in Florence and specialized in Costume and Stage design but since I have experimented with all kinds of materials and techniques...

I work with oils, acrylics, pastels, ink, collage, clay, papier-maché...

 

I don't know the year I've started teaching Art privately but I remember the two girls being around 10 years old and now they are adults already, off to uni... and one of them on her way to become a great artist, which fills me with pride if I was only a tiny part of it :)

I have also been teaching Art for a number of years through "Art à l'école", a luxemburgish organisation promoting Art outside school hours, which are featured in the link above.

 

In my courses I work a lot with "recycling stuff". It triggers the kids (and adults) imagination and we are never out of supply...

"Mess" is important too! To allow the kids to fully express themselves (yes, and adults too...) and make the mess they can't make at home... 

 

My philosophy: Have fun and experiment, the result is secondary. You have to let yourself go and enjoy the process without the pressure of immediate perfect results, in order to learn. Basically, allow yourself to learn from your mistakes... and everything will evolve naturaly.

 

Joey
