Filippa Christofalou is a doctoral student in Art & Art Education at Teachers College, Columbia NYC. She holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master’s degree in Education so she knows how you learn. Filippa also studied Theater and Drama in Education so she knows how to help you express yourself, and support you to learn by using your body. Filippa also studied History of Art so she can tell why Art is so vital (especially during the learning process which is -guess what- always).
Filippa has designed and instructed a plethora of programs for kids and adults in more than 5 countries and has collaborated with several Museums, Art Galleries, Organisations, Schools, Institutions and Companies all over the world so she knows how to make content related to *your* audience.
The Drama Science Lab is (one of) her way to channel her passion and beliefs about education and learning, a personal journey of becoming.
Her approach Sciart Storytelling in the Galleries through Drama is her last ongoing project, still evolving and growing.
Filippa lives in Manhattan with her husband and their son. You will most likely find her walking excitedly in a Museum or reading a book in a cozy coffee shop.
