As an art student, I believe creativity is really crucial to the growth of kids, therefore I wish to let their imagination run wild in my class. Each class, I would introduce them to the theme of the day through a mini-activity, for example, storytelling, puppet shows, song-sharing etc., then I will let them create an artwork based on their own interpretation of the theme. I don’t want my students to just follow the rules of painting or sketching, instead I want them to have fun while learning and to understand the concepts by exploring colours and different mediums of art on their own.
As a student currently studying Illustration at OCAD University I find myself focusing on the results I can produce rather than appreciating the process of making art. Children have such a pure view of their own art, able to explore their own ideas without fear or self-criticism and genuinely enjoying the ability to create. I’d like for students to keep this mindset while they grow as artists. I want them to be able to express themselves and know with practice, they can create anything their imagination can think of.

Chinese Teacher & Art teaching assistant
Has been doing art and design over 10 years. Drawing and crafting are not only my professional career, but also my happiness and life. I was thinking, how I can make everyone else to feel what I feel. In the past 10 years, I kept updating my teaching concept. Now I finally realized, only when people have confident, so they could enjoy this inconceivable of art. As a president of Apollo School, we wish we can help all our students learn lot of techniques, but most important to make them enjoy a thing they do and find out their unique personal style. Cheer!

A fun learning experience is the key for children to get the most benefits out of their education. Learning language requires long term practice. As parents, we want our children to maintain and improve their command of Mandarin, especially growing up in a multicultural environment. I encourage students to speak Mandarin in my class, in hopes that they can learn the language with confidence in a comfortable atmosphere. This also helps them build a solid foundation for speaking, reading, writing and listening from a young age.
