Art Teacher



Teresa is an illustrator and 2D animator. She graduated from ALBA (Academie Libanaise des Beaux Arts) and grew up in Lebanon in an artistic environment filled with an atmosphere of integrity yet also disorder, as well as war and liberal spirit. Her esthetic choices stem directly from these surroundings which marked her childhood.
She is now offering art classes at the Alif Institute, with a focus on the Arab culture and world. Teresa believes that by drawing and painting, we can both make the world a better place and take the mind to a peaceful state.
