Art Instruction, Children and Youth

Dear Principals, Teachers and Recreational Program Managers;


I am currently seeking a postion as an art instructor with your recreational classes for your elementary aged students and youth.  I am seeking after 4pm and other employment opportunities at your school, including Visting Artist Programs.  I can also work in your home or facility.  I create a wide variety of art programs including drawing and painting, pen and ink, watercolour and acrylic painting, large scale mural painting, large textile wall hangings/weavings, plate decorating, sculpture, ceramics and specialty modeling clays, arts and crafts, beading, mask making, pastel, cartooning and beginners anime as well as work in other media.  I offer a broad range of high quality artistic activities for your creative group in a fun, informative and nuturing environment.  I am always quick to praise and encourage blossoming artistic talent.


It is my hope that my 20+ years of classroom experience with the Toronto District School Board and The City of Toronto Parks and Recreation will be an asset to any position you may have?  Enclosed is a list of my current childrens programs.  To find out about a program for your creative group...please do not hesitate to call or text me at:  (647) 403-9244.
