HALLI'S TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Kids see art as an opportunity for free play and fun, often placing much less focus on how "good" the art looks, and instead pursuing the joy of the creation process. I think people should have freedom to explore and try new things, while also being taught about how the materials work.
