Teacher Profile

Belinda Tibay completed studies in 1991 with a Diploma in Art Education at the University of Northern Rivers Lismore. Also studied from 1987 to 1990 completing a Bachelor of Art (Contemporary Visual Art) at the University of Northern Rivers Lismore NSW.

In 1992 I commenced work in the field of teaching visual arts to high school, primary school, special needs and Youth at Risk. My time to date has been spent in Schools, Art Galleries and Youth Projects. During this time I set up Arts programs in four different schools in Western Australia. And am currently a practicing artist.

My Teaching Philosophy has developed from a fascination in the Art process and how an artwork is put together, leading to an ongoing interest in learning new processes. My passion is teaching Art classes where I have the

opportunity to extend secondary and primary school age student’s responses to their art learning journey, including exploring logical and intuitive thinking that communicates each student’s own ideas resulting in individual art works. This is done by developing a relationship with each student, leading to

understanding of how they learn, think and what they enjoy doing. I model Art language, giving different solutions for one idea. Also I verbally critic an Art work for them before asking for their responses during group discussions. I encourage a positive learning environment that uses the basis of Tribes teaching philosophy. In Tribes each child is supported and encouraged to

develop at their own pace and express their ideas without prejudice. Each child learns about their own strengths and collaborates with others. I believe building rapport with a student is fundamental as part of the teaching and learning journey.
