Anxhela Coba
Trained in drawing, sculpture, painting and pastels and other mediums. Have experience teaching art workshops, personal lessons and working with all ages. Along with art, I am a student of mathematics and a yoga instructor. Passionate about teaching and wanting to make a difference and encourage children to follow and develop they're creative expressions with proper assistance and support.

I was born in Albania and came to the US very young (lived most of my life here). In school, I always gravitated towards the arts and mathematics. In high school, I created many award-winning artworks, some that were featured in newspapers and magazines, like Itowns magazine. I volunteered a lot at a children's museum, mostly helping conduct and assist art-related workshops and classes. Later in life along with other disciplines, I began deeply cultivating my art advancing my techniques and began teaching workshops at the University of Management in southeast, Iowa. I have worked with a diverse set of mediums from the multiple submission pieces I have been asked for. Along with art, my interests range from health, botany, mathematics, interpersonal psychology and dancing. I believe that art is what connects all fields of discipline, it is the most abstract field of creation, and allows us to imagine, construct and fine-tune our internal goals. Giving children these tools is not only fun and exciting but beneficial and necessary for a healthy and creative critical thinking to occur in later years of they're lives.
