Johanna Thindisa is an arts and culture and life skills teacher who also volunteers at early childhood development centers in Joburg. She believes that art and culture is the way to enlighten and brighten young minds.
“I love teaching arts and culture because it activates the mind emotionally and socially. It makes one lively and happy. It allows people to grow and be visionaries. In my time teaching arts and culture, I’ve gotten to see what it does for the children, If a child is not doing too well in maths or languages, arts and culture always allows them to express themselves because there is no wrong or right, so that activates the mind regardless. To be an art teacher you must be positive and have a lot of patience, have a big heart always love what you do. I’d encourage young up and coming creatives to take good care of themselves and focus on that, let the art come from the Inside out.”
