Hi! My name is Maytal Gotesman. As a former CMS alumni, I am incredibly honored to be teaching art to my community. Art is my life-long passion. I enjoy every step of the process of creating art and find that sharing my knowledge and passion with others to be equally rewarding.
I became an art educator because I wanted to create a space for students to feel comfortable using art to express their thoughts and feelings. I teach my students the skills and knowledge for expanding their artistic potential and the confidence to use it. At the same time, I encourage them to break the rules and make mistakes so their potential isn't hindered by the judgment of others. My curriculum reinforces such an environment as well. I give my students assignments that challenge them to learn new techniques and mediums with formal instructions, as well as assignments with less rigid instructions, providing the opportunity to self-explore.
