arts in education program 2012 – Sri Lanka

From October to December 15th, I was teaching photography in the free education unit of the One world Foundation (OWF) in Ahungalla, Sri Lanka. The ngo Paint for life, located in Vienna, awarded me the residence. I designed my classes ike workshops, where the students had the opportunity to create their own work, receive critical feedback and exchange experiences and skills. After learning all technical aspects, the students had to develop their own projects and to define and complete them. The classes aimed to strengthen the students’ life skills, encourage them to realize their own ideas and visions and last but not least having fun to explore their world in a new way: through photography!
