Art Teacher at Educational Institutions

2008 – Present

From the age of 3, I started working with Elena Stoica, a prominent art teacher in Romania.

Under my teacher’s guidance I had outstanding results in international competitions, participated in various exhibitions and attended summer schools in the USA.

I started teaching art in 2008, after my graduation from N. Tonitza Art High School in Bucharest.

After more than 12 years of exploring and experimenting with great art educators, I developed a teaching approach inspired by Reggio Emilia educational philosophy.

I have experience with different age groups and I focus on creativity development.

I strongly believe that children are naturally creative, they only need guidance and challenge.
