Teaching Ethos / 教學理念

I am a passionate and experienced art workshop leader. The quality of my workshops has been affirmed by the Community Arts Leader Award obtained in 2007. I deliver educational workshops for participants of all ages (3 years old and above) with diverse media, spanning from visual, audio to performance. In addition, because of my interest in cultural diversity, schools often approach me for  the following workshops:

Chinese rice-dough figuring, origami, paper cutting, shadow puppets, Chinese calligraphy, face/body painting fused with Chinese writing, learning Chinese through arts;

Printmaking, artist bookmaking, sound art (everyday environmental sounds particularly) and sound drawing... and many more.

In my workshops, I enjoy assisting students to develop their creativity and imagination. In the process of making artworks, I set challenges to the students and encourage them to experiment with intuition as well as systematic analysis. Students can learn not only skills but also enthusiasms of making artworks.

我在英國從事藝術創作已經有十多年了,並於九十八年十二月初通過英國倫敦大學博士口試,取得博士學位。近年來,我也在英國以藝術家的身份,經由工作坊從事藝術教學,學生對象涵蓋幼稚園、國小、國中、高中和大學。

在我的藝術工作坊中,我不要求學生們個個都成為藝術家,但我會致力把他們的創造力與想像力激發出來。在協助學生們做創作的過程中,我會給予他們不同的挑戰,鼓勵學生們獨立思考、解決問題、探索個人潛力、發掘美學。工作坊的形式讓我能參與學生的創作過程,這是藝術創作時最有價值的部份, 我希望來到我工作坊的學生們,也能夠和我一起享受這段專注探索的過程!
