Bachelor and MA in Art Education, PhD in Art Pedagogy. For the last 25 years I have been working at this University. I have experiences in working with persons with special needs and in organizing artistic workshops oriented toward development of creativity.

Current work and research interests

I am working as an assistant professor of art education at the University in Maribor. At the Faculty of Education, I am working at the Department of Art Education and the Department for Preschool Education. My working interests are oriented towards:

  • post-modern art education,

  • didactic transfers of contemporary art into pedagogic process,

  • preschool art education,

  • development of creativity via ITT.

Mostly looking forward to working in ITTS, because…

…it offers a lot of didactic possibilities in art education.
