Since young Polina was interested in visual arts, she started taking art lessons when she was 5 years old. Polina’s mother has been a teacher of arts and art history for over 30 years and Polina was greatly involved in teaching since she was 15. At the present moment Polina has two degrees: Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Environmental design (OCAD U, Canada). Polina worked as a volunteer in the art school for number of years before she started her teaching career. She developed her own curriculum that covers but not limited to: composition, color theory, implementation of different types of media, and fundamentals of art history.
Polina believes that every child is an artist and the main goal of an art educator is to create a learning environment that provides various resources and opportunities to gain knowledge in the process of making art meanwhile exploring different ways of expressing child’s personality.
