Barrie Central Collegiate (BCC)

BARRIE CENTRAL (SCDSB), Barrie, Canada.  February 2008 – June 2011

At Barrie Central , I taught Visual Art  grades 9 through 12 with the Ontario Art Curriculum focusing on Art Making skills, Art Theory and  Global Visual Arts through a Canadian lens, focusing on digital mediums, drawing, painting,  printmaking and sculpture.

At BCC,  I created an ARTS website and instituted an ‘Artist of the Month’.   We updated Arts Night, adding the increasingly popular Art Contest – voted on by Arts Night attendees.

Galleries of students’ work in  Portfolio 2009, Portfolio 2010 , Portfolio 2011 and Arts Night Gallery are posted.

  • Teacher Advisor to Arts Council – organizing Library Unplugged, Coffee Nights, our annual Paint-a-thon, Art Boards and our a yearly photo-book of Art Awesomeness.
  • Assistant Advisor to BCC’s Student Newspaper
