August 2015 marked a whole year of teaching at 4Cats Arts Studio! I can’t explain how much I have learned since beginning at the studio last August. From teaching late night adult workshops, to grasping the different ways in which people are able to learn, I am so happy for the variety of experience I have gained.
One of the most valuable things I have learned at 4Cats is how to break down concepts or ideas into their smallest parts so that they could be understood easily. I quickly discovered that many of the words I used while teaching and the concepts that I thought were common place or ‘known’ were in fact totally alien to students (adults and children). Tailoring my language use and slowing down to take time to understand the level my students were at really enabled me to simplify curriculum for students.
So far, working at 4Cats has been my favourite job. Helping students create masterpieces and watching them develop or become confident in their abilities is the best feeling. I look forward to my new schedule at 4Cats, working Monday and Wednesday nights!
