I have also been a painting teacher in some schools, participated in cultural days with students of all ages and levels, I like to spread art as a positive development activity.

It creates collaborative links with artists and professionals from all areas and at the same time it can be a personal refuge where you can snuggle up for a while to contemplate and create.
