I discovered St. Aidan's Christian School about four years ago and later became a volunteer teacher at their North campus here in Winnipeg.
Then I met Francine, vice president of the school. She had a dream. A dream to begin an art program at the St. Aidan's school operating out of the Calvary Temple facility in downtown Winnipeg. To make a long story short, I got hired to be the "face" of the art program there.
This first inaugural year has been a delight, challenging and, as I've mentioned, a dream come true for me. My students have changed and so have I, in fact it turns out that they have become my favorite artists!
The School has been a wonderful support and guide. My personal art history and experience has come to be invaluable, even to the point of realizing gifts I did not know I had.
I've run across this "T-Shirt"...."Some people only dream of meeting their favorite artists, I teach mine!" I love it. So true in my experience. I will be ordering!
I am sooo excited for my students about this art show coming up on Friday and the weekend. My prayer is MANY PEOPLE will come and appreciate the unique creativity of these amazing artists.
