Meet Our Instructors
Professional visual artists from our community play a tremendous role in helping the AGL with its education programmes. Artists are employed on an ongoing basis to deliver high-quality studio-based programmes (such as summer camps, art classes, PA Days and family workshops) at the Gallery/Studio. Our Artist Instructors teach children, youth and adults a variety of approaches to art making, employing a wide range of media.
Vivian is a very talented and established teacher. She has created and taught textile arts workshops at Fanshawe College, and is currently working as high school art teacher full time while running the gallery and teaching her studio classes at the gallery studio. Her love of art and her love of teaching is evident if you have ever stepped foot into her studio to take any of her fused glass, pottery, resin, alcohol ink, felting and many other workshops that she offers. Vivian’s passion and enthusiasm for the texture and colour is evident in her work and has transposed into other mediums of her art practice. Visit the gallery to see her intricate works of art in fabric, glass pottery and resin
