Rebeca Nigrinis

 

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

Rebeca is a mother of two and an enthusiastic, self-taught artist, with an artistic family background. Bringing her two passions together, art and children, Rebeca specialized in murals for children rooms professionally over the last 14 years before starting to teach art for children 4 years ago. With the ability to immerse in a child’s world, Rebeca is able to help them create something unique, using artistic tools to build on motoric skills, boost confidence, and stimulate creative thinking and problem solving.

Being a mother of two little ones, teaching art for children and painting murals takes most of her time, but every day, no matter how tired, she’s committed to creating at her art studio. She says: “That’s my golden moment. I truly believe in Picasso’s quote: ‘Inspiration does exist, but it must find you working’.”

Rebeca  has participated in art festivals in Saudia Arabia where her art has gained recognition. Her work is colourful and figurative, and she enjoys trying new techniques. She has continuously conducted art workshops, private lesson and art parties for children in Saudi Arabia and in Oman, all with the best product: Happy creative kids!
