My name is Urszula Kubrak and I am the visual arts teacher at P.S. 151K in Brooklyn New York.
I have been teaching at this school for 18 years; 5 years as a first grade teacher and then arts teacher.
I was born in Poland (Pulaski, Kosciuszko, Walesa, Jan Paul II). I grew up on a nice farm very close to nature. Nature, the biggest artist and master teacher, is to no surprise my greatest inspiration in all art endeavors.
Besides painting, drawing, knitting, and crocheting I enjoy walking on the beach, practicing yoga, and listening to classical music.
I am a proud mom of two sons; Jakub (Fisher Banking in Washington State) and Greg (Virginia Tech student). I also have a daughter-in-law Magda, a 4 year old grandson Vincent, and a 2 year old granddaughter Zofia.
When it comes to my teaching philosophy in art, the following quotes and artists come to mind:
Pablo Picasso
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
”The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider's web.”
Leonardo da Vinci
“ Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world.”
"Science and art belong to the whole world, and before them vanish the barriers of nationality."
