Hello, I’m Ms. Liesbeth, a teacher at Benedetto XV International School. Originally from the Netherlands and now living in Rome, I have a diverse background and a passion for teaching art. With a degree in languages and art history, I further pursued my interest in art therapy, completing a master’s degree in “arte-terapia” in 2011. Over the past 20 years, I have conducted art workshops in various settings, including daycare centers for individuals with mental disabilities and psychiatric disorders, public elementary and middle schools, and group lessons for children, teenagers, and adults.
Drawing, painting, and creating are not only my personal loves but also the means through which I empower others. At Benedetto XV International School, I have the privilege of guiding students in expressing themselves, exploring their imagination, and tapping into their inner strength and creativity. Witnessing individuals discover their emotions, enhance self-awareness, and gain new perspectives through art is incredibly rewarding.
I believe that art is a powerful tool for personal growth and development, and as a teacher at Benedetto XV International School, I am dedicated to sharing this belief with my students. Whether it’s through guiding children, teenagers, or adults, I am committed to fostering self-expression, creativity, and self-discovery through art. It brings me immense satisfaction to see individuals thrive and gain a new way of observing and understanding themselves and the world through their artistic endeavors.
