I am a professional art teacher and have five years’ experience teaching multiple grades in an International Schools.
I have acquired specialised academic training in the field of fine arts and education and completed both a Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree at Tianjin Academy of Fine Art. After a few years of teaching in China, I completed a second Master’s degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Arts London.
As a practitioner, I specialise in sculpture and painting. In recent years I have expanded my work as an artist to include installations, photography, ceramics and fine art. My artwork focuses on personal experiences such as traditional culture, life and religion. I have always enjoyed creativity in all its forms, and I was fortunate enough to be able to explore my artistic curiosity throughout my education. I am also passionate about curating students’ artwork. In my previous schools, I organised many successful art exhibitions and hosted art festivals. I have also worked on outreach within China to forge cooperation with local foundations, museums, art galleries and art institutions.
My educational philosophy is that each child is unique. As such, an important part of my job as an educator is to help students discover their individuality and to support them to realise their creative potential. I believe in hands-on experiential learning and encouraging unique learning engagements. I want my students to feel confident that they can apply what they’ve learned in art class to real-life situations. In addition, I want my students to develop an appreciation of the arts and to understand the reciprocal nature of engaging with creative processes.
Collaboration, cooperation, and open communication between home and school are key to building a strong foundation for a successful school year. I am proud and excited to be joining The British School of Beijing.
