Lavinia Yong

 

Hello! My name is Lavinia. I have 11 years of teaching experience in English and Art to children aged 2-8 years old experience. My teaching specializing in Early Chilhood Education.

 

I have dedicated my life to teaching and nurturing the young minds of tomorrow. My teaching journey began when I was still in high school, helping out at my aunt’s Childcare Centre. From there, the love of teaching brought me to study in depth and acquire my Diploma in Early Childhood Development at Smart Readers International College of Malaysia, an internationally acclaimed college with links to Hertfordshire University, England.

 

I was at the prime age of 18 while I was studying and working at the same time for a more hands-on approach and to practice what I learnt in college. The whole 4-year voyage tested my ability and gave me valuable first-hand experiences. It ignited my self-confidence, enhanced my talents, and helped me in realizing a rewarding future ahead of me.

 

In all my years of teaching, one thing that I have always had a strong fondness for is Art. I believe that art not only brings out the creativity in a young ones, but also helps them in boosting their critical thinking, building their self-confidence, and stepping out of their comfort zone.

 

For me, what makes art even more interesting for children is when I incorporate art with nature. I first saw this potential when I went camping, that’s when it hit me that nature is a work of art. My Backyard Art Classes will revolve around these concepts to unlock children’s full capabilities and talents.

 

In these Backyard Art Classes, children will learn:

  • Different Artistic Techniques
  • Working with different texture on nature materials
  • Colour Exploration

 

This will be done through stages and/or levels. Each class will be given a topic for them to discover their inner Van Gogh’s and Picasso’s. There will be discussions, teachable moments through artistic devising, and laying out foundations for them to find their aha moments.

 

When the project is done, children will do a mini showcase to present their masterpiece to the entire class and parents.
