resume

I work as a manager of education in the Center for Culture in Lublin (Poland), where I run educational studio „Latające Warsztaty Rękodzieła” (Flying Craft Workshops). I specialize in adult teaching. I hold MA in art education (Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland, 2000).

In years 2004-2012 I used to work as a freelansed teacher. I taught at Lublin University of Technology (sculpture and interior design classes for architecture students) and at the University of the Third Age. I also ran hobby handcraft workshops in various cultural institutions and art galleries. In the end I came to conclusion, that hobby workshops would be actually the most flexible system, which would give me the biggest independance and the opportunity to teach what interests me the most and to implement solutions that make the most sense to me. It lead me to the place, were I am today.  

I am also independent artist. To see my works go to the main page (“Works” section).

my teaching philosophy

Freedom, imagination, fulfilment, grow and courage. Learning may be a way to achieve these goals. As C.G. Jung teaches us, external freedom starts from the inner one. My ambition as a teacher is to show people how to use their imagination freely, without (self-)censorship. I also aim to teach them how to recognize and rely on their own resources, like their own unique image of the world, specific gifts, interests, knowledge and experience.

Teacher’s role is to observe developing of culture and society and to define what knowledge and skills people need now and will need in a future. The topics and methods of teaching should follow from this.  

I believe that a teacher has social responsibility. For that reason when ruling Law and Justice party started breaking Polish Constitution I invited lawyers to run workshops about our Constitution at my studio in the Center for Culture.
