Welcome to Christina's portfolio. This is me (with my dog, Nikolai).
Having started as a professional designer myself, I am truly passionate about teaching art and design. They are subjects that lend themselves well to providing opportunities for students to think critically and creatively. I find it particularly rewarding when I am able to facilitate opportunities for students to transform their innovative ideas into reality. Enabling students to solve problems, explore different possibilities and discover solutions really enriches the learning process and makes for excellent outcomes. It is how artists and designers work in the “real world” and in industry, and I believe the classroom experience should reflect this.
I am always designing, making, creating and photographing. My enthusiasm for art and design outside of the classroom makes me an enthusiastic teacher inside the classroom. I am dedicated to sharing my passion for creativity in an inclusive, safe environment and fostering a place and atmosphere where students are allowed to experiment, explore and learn.
On the next pages you will find examples of both my students' work and my own work. Thank you for looking.
