Larisa Sjoerds

Larisa Sjoerds is an art teacher, museum docent, artist and student. She is passionate about interactive tour guiding techniques, facilitating creative processes and developing visual literacy.  She designs educational programs for the Dordrecht Museum and Stedelijk Museum Schiedam. Larisa is also studying for her ‘Master of Education in Arts’ at the Piet Zwart Institute and is currently writing her thesis about using Visible Thinking in the museum.  As an artist her favorite medium is drawing and painting, she creates large (1m x 2m!) and intriguing ink drawings of abstracted human figures. She is always keen to have the ‘my little brother could do that’ conversation about art, especially if people, in her classroom or in the museum, are open to exploring different perspectives!
