Daria has over 20 years of experience working with children of all ages. Over the past 15 years, she has worked as a children’s art educator at a school, with private groups, and children’s art studios. Daria aims to facilitate creative visual arts experiences for children, which enable them to explore the range and variety of what they are capable of accomplishing. She has witnessed the impact art making has on the development of critical thinking skills, developing perseverance, and building an appreciation for the different ways people see and interpret the world. Daria is repeatedly amazed and inspired by how, despite students being given the same instructions, each child’s creative spirit manages to shine through, resulting in unique works of art.
