The Fox and Education
IT IS MY ONGOING MISSION TO PROVIDE INNOVATIVE LEARNING SITUATIONS
Where possibilities are created to make the audience a participator. In my opinion, art is for everyone and education is an ongoing process that does not stop after school or at a certain age. It is my ongoing mission to provide innovative learning situations where possibilities are created to make the audience a participator. Art has an intrinsic value that i want to address, for I believe in its wisdom. My goal is to learn from art directly, instead of using it as a means.
HOLD ON MAGNOLIA
The past is a given, let’s talk about what you can do now! Coaching is a process that aims to improve behavior and communication focussing on the ‘here and now’ rather than the distant past or the future. For me coaching is about personal growth. Starting with awareness, recognizing possibilities and making choices that are aligned with your values and goals. I want you to feel in charge, energetic, empowered by your talents and qualities. Knowing your self better and better. What can you expect? Together we determine the goal of the coaching. Whether it is one meeting or recurring. We set clear, achievable goals that you are eager to achieve. I guide you in this process.More info
The Fox and learning from art
‘Socratic Compass’ is a method i created, where art will answer your value based, personal question.
With the help of an audio guide and a performative circle, every partaker will find a surprising and meaningful answer, while participating, to their individual question. Sharing the experiences will make you realize common goals and will allow to learn from each other.

The Fox and Extracurricular education
Let’s create a project that invites young people to participate and experiment!
Young people are either indecisive when it comes to art or very specific about personal preferences. In my opinion both are a perfect starting point for an experimental, fun and participative project or happening that will lead to new experiences and understanding. The cultural organization serves as a stage where the encounter with art is playfully directed in order to learn. My approach is always hands-on and there is a possible program for everyone! Creating an environment where the individual is valued, and the group will benefit. Curiosity and fun emerge and lead to an exchange of enthusiasm and wisdom. After such an experience, the feeling of pleasure and success is connected to art and the organization, which is a great opportunity for a tie in the future.
Products: Custom designed program for ANY level, age and place, participative and experimental education project design and production.
The Fox and Workshop
Could you use some help with skill, approach, creative thinking while learning about yourself and others?
Do you want to do a creative session or series of classes? Consider a custom designed individual or group workshop. The learning objective is exploring and discovering new personal possibilities. While making and creating, which will lead to improved cognitive, visual and manual abilities. I will guide you through in a playful program where color, line and form will enable the first timer with confidence and will liberate the professional from a fixed approach. Both will be motivated to see new solutions, reveal potential and practice new skills. My background as an artist and as an experienced educator make me a creative and original program maker for cultural content which will engage a curious dialogue and will lead to insight.
Products: Drawing, painting, photography workshop (series), group or individual skill workshop, meditative drawing or painting workshop, experimental material research, your specific theme combined with visual learning.Example of an online drawing class

The Fox and thoughts on education
As an educator i think about elements and concepts of learning all the time. While doing this I retrospect on my own experiences.
I grew up between two cultures and my reality was complex in school and at home. I found love and wisdom in the arts. In my opinion there is no good way of raising children, not one guideline for good education en not a singular advise that is valid for all. making, playing, telling stories and interacting in dialogue is what connects us.Link to Medium – short stories on education
