Six Owls and A Party goes to Brampton!

I spent the last 2 days at Hewson PS, in Brampton, with seven of their JK/SK classes sharing my book, and Magic of Mosaics Workshop.
It's always a good thing spending time at a school that encourages literacy like this one clearly does! Their Library! WOW! Spoke volumes. 
I couldn't stop saying, "WOW! What a nice Library". 
In a perfect world every school would have a library like this one.
I really couldn't stop saying, "WOW!".

Six Owls and A Party goes to Toronto!

Yesterday I spent the day, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders at Transfiguration of Our Lord CS in Toronto, sharing my Magic of Mosaics workshop + author reading.
They (1st, 2nd and 3rd graders) make you feel like a Superstar:)
"You're the best artist ever"
"Do you sell your stuff for a million bucks?"
"Is your mosaics in museums?"

2017 Reading for the Love to It conference

I had a table at the Reading for the Love of It conference, at The Toronto Sheraton Centre, Thursday and Friday. I was promoting/selling my mosaic workshop + author/artist visit to teachers and librarians from all over Ontario and Canada. They are a very  enthusiastic and passionate bunch! 
"definitely the friendliest trade show going" - a fellow exhibitor.
And when there was a lull in the traffic flow I worked on ideas for my next book:)

Yesterday I was at Ryerson Public School in Cambridge with my Magic of Mosaics Presentation. 
I'm always amazed with their levels of creativity:)

This artist quietly worked away with such tiny little pieces!

Hillary would be proud!

I spent this morning doing a mosaic workshop at Trafalgar Castle School in Whitby, Ontario with 19 lovely, bright, enthusiastic grade 11 art students - "women of tomorrow".

Trafalgar Castle School is a warm and welcoming community with a history of educating girls and young women since 1874. We are a proud part of Whitby, and welcome students from across Durham Region, the Greater Toronto Area, and around the world.

Given today's date (the day after a very polarized American election) I was left thinking -
 "Hillary would be proud!"
