Q&A with Teresa Beyer for The Art Center of Redwood City and San Carlos
What projects are you working on right now, and why are you enthusiastic about them?
My two main projects right now are a new series of paintings and my art classes in french.
I started a new series recently, called “Alice in San Francisco”. I am using the character of Alice in Wonderland that everybody knows to address the issues specific to the Bay area where I live and Paris the city where I’m from. I like to compare these two cultures, look at what make them so particular, the food, the housing, the traffic, the way of life. In these paintings I try to represent the schizophrenic state of our lives in these cities in perpetual changes.
What is your favorite part of the artistic process?
My favorite parts of the artistic process is when I talk to people and they tell me about their own stories, about their lives in San Francisco or in the Bay Area. I’m an art historian, each of my paintings start with a research on a specific subject; the 1906 earthquake, the gold rush, the silicon valley, etc… People around here made San Francisco, they make up its history, even survived local earthquakes. These individuals tell me stories, and show me photos or books. They are a great inspiration for my work.
Tell me about the classes that you teach and the interaction with your Students.
I have always been interested by the art world. I studied and taught Art and Art history in France. When I moved to the Bay Area thirteen years ago, I started teaching french in private schools. It’s only recently that I decided to combine french, art and art history. I started to teach art classes in French to adults and kids. After teaching at different locations, I opened my own business “Artefleur’s studio” at the Art center of Redwood City and San Carlos. It’s a thrilling new adventure, my students bring so much of themselves, their energy to learn, their questioning, their creativity. I’m really enjoying it. My classes are very flexible, I always ask my students what they would like to learn and then I add to it. Art is a really good way to learn another language and to keep it fun.
