I also work as an Arts Instructor with the Hamilton Conservatory for the Arts (and their Culture for Kids in the Arts program), through which I provide visual arts programming for elementary school students. This work has taken me to various locations in Halton region, as part of their After School Arts Program, as well as teaching in the Children’s Arts Exploration Summer Camp in HCA’s art studio.
I’ve also run editing workshops for artists at the Factory Media Centre, and conducted visual and media arts workshops for both children and adults in Hamilton through various community projects, using the arts as a vehicle to connect with and inspire people.
In summer 2016, I attended Artist-Educator Summer Camp at the Workers Arts & Heritage Centre, with sessions consisting of seminars in museum education, labour art and labour history, anti-oppression pedagogical frameworks, and learning models for different abilities. These workshops enriched my skills, further equipping me to teach issue-based workshops for kids, youth and adults.
