Miss Nadia's Art Class
Pictured are me, my husband, Jeremy, and our two boys, Beckham and Ravi. Art is an important part of our family, and we all enjoy creating.
I love being the art teacher at Whispering Palms! Being able to work with the creative minds at school is one of the coolest jobs I've ever had.
I truly believe that anyone can be an artist. As a teacher my main goal for the kids in my class is to help them develop confidence in creating art. I try to help the kids to not compare themselves to their classmates, me, or other artists. The most important thing is finding what each individual is good at and helping them develop their style.
Sometimes kids make a “mistake” on their work. Instead of allowing them to start over, one of our class rules is “Work with your mistakes!” Sometimes mistakes are the path to amazing discoveries. It can be hard, but being able to step back and figure out how to work with an accident helps the kids broaden their minds and change the way they look at things.
We try to have fun in our class, and I always feel special when I walk through the door and the kids say, “Ms Nadia is here! Yay! Art!”
I have set up a blog (click on the top right corner to access it) and will update it with current projects and other things I might share with the kids.
If you ever have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me!
