About Gregorius

Hi!

I am a New York based artist and educator, originally from The Netherlands. I have taught and practiced internationally with a focus in the US and in Holland - with students ranging from 7-12th grade + 1st & 2nd year college.

In both the classroom and in my own practice as an artist, I explore the familiar and contemporary through a process and inquiry-based approach, with influences of art history that I am inspired by.

The Middle Ages, Flemish art and the Dutch masters from the 1600s are always referenced in my work, creating new spaces that interact through walls and voids, offering glimpses of spaces that we identify with and enables the viewer to create personal narratives.

I am strong in visualizing through art, using drawing, painting and mixed media as my core business and language!

I offer lessons that enable students to learn to engage with creative thinking through Fine Art. It is all about exploration of materials and techniques, through offering choice during a productive and creative process. Skill is combined with taking risks, observation, dialogue and visualizing the imaginary.

Lets get started and amaze yourself with your capabilities and creative potential. I also happen to speak Dutch, my native tongue, so lots of possibilities there!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

At the Media College in Amsterdam, a newly created position was offered to me in 2014, after successfully having taught a new curriculum that proved more challenging and productive: "Visualizing Art".
I focused on sketching techniques through play and experimenting.
I declined, since after my studies at Pratt Institute, I wanted to find my way back to New York City to pursue my teaching philosophy there. I did: At Avenues: The World School and Success Academy Charter Schools, running my own curriculum, building on my teaching experience from the Media College back in Holland.

Painting

When I studied Fine Art in Education, I was selected to pursue my art at Pratt Institute. I focused on drawing and painting, learning how to make my own oil and acrylic paint, gesso, use adhesives and a wide range of techniques, then allowing me to apply the learned skills and make them my own in my own practice.
