Drawing on my history as a practicing artist and art educator, I have designed and taught art classes for grades 4-8 students and presented them to Lambton County Schools over the past several years. Most recently, I have been one of three artists teaching art projects through the Visiting Artists in the Local Schools Program (VALS) generously offered each year by Gallery in the Grove.
I use a step by step process with students to ensure that each person feels successful executing the art project at hand. Students and teachers have been pleasantly surprised at how participants have found their inner artist, no matter what their skill level. The importance of the Visual Arts for children of all ages is more evident today than ever before. Hands on visual art helps children to build confidence, problem solve creatively, express feelings and communicate with or without words. We already have the best tools in our possession - our hands, eyes and minds.
“Nine Schools, Ten Cats and 250 Creative Elementary Student created the Community Art Project “Mrs. Hanna’s Cats”. The Photos show the Cats travelling around the County and ending up in Canatara Park….where they live today. This Creative Art Project was generously supported by the Creative County Fund of Lambton.”
Visual artist, illustrator and art educator David Moore, born in South America, returned to Sarnia when he was 9 years old. His paintings, prints and drawings reflect the vibrant colours of Peruvian weaving, painted ceramics, and line work in engraved silver that were part of his early life.
