Amar Soni’s Summary
Art, writing, design and education are four areas that I blend in my work. I am interested in working with children and young people to create new bridges in the world through the medium of art.
Conceptualizing, designing and illustrating ideas, thoughts and stories is my area of specialization. Translating the visual dimension of a project through diverse media such as drawing and painting, illustration, graphic design, photography and technology are my strengths. With a strong sense of character development for stories, I approach my projects through a combination of cultural understanding, imaginative thinking, research, improvisation and questioning. With training in education, design, dance and art history combined with practical experience in teaching, publishing, graphic design and research, I bring an interdisciplinary approach to my work.
What do children think and what inspires them to learn? How can art bring a new perception and thinking into their life? – Inspired by these two questions, as an educator, I believe in providing pathways for children to explore life deeply in thoughtful ways. Understanding children through their aesthetic abilities and perceptions, I look at ways to integrate their perception of the outer world with connections to their inner selves. With a natural ease for relating to children and sharing their joys and sorrows, I spend time with children engaging in fun and serious questioning, sharing of ideas and listening.
