After years of teaching practice, I have chosen this combination of mental and physical art because they are complementary and supportive to one another in a way that stimulates and encourages healthy and functional development.

This Program was successfully offered at the “Batshaw Youth Family Centers”, Dawson Alternative School for a period of 5 years and at Meadowbrook School in Lachine. It Won an award in 2005 from the Lester B Pierson School Board & was nominated for an award in 2005 from “Volunteer in Action” Quebec.
