After long years of teaching art and exhibitions in many countries as a painter, I have now reached a different method of teaching art: workshops. This is a new challenge for me. Some of the most important points in organizing workshops are:
1.Making a large impact on students in a very short time;
2.Particularly interesting is teaching those with no previous artistic experience;
3.Or, those who are living in difficult conditions;
4.Women and children acquire a new self-confidence;
5.Perhaps, for some it will open a door to arts as a profession;
6.Group work brings people closer together;
7.In illnesses and helpless situations, it can be used as a therapy which will bring hope and quicker healing
8.To bring joy and relaxation to all groups.
