James Lyng  High school

Urban arts - Inspired minds

Montreal, Quebec


Over the last 3 years I had the great opportunity to be an artist in residence at James Lyng High school in Montreal Quebec. There, I wore different artists hat such as art consultant, curator, art educator and muralist. This was incredible personal and professional experience and I am forever grateful to Dereck Cauchi, ex school principal, Marylin Ramalkhan, vice-principal, all the students, teachers, educational specialist, caffeteria cooks, caretakers and school admistrations for trusting me and giving me the opportunity to work on some amazing projects with some super cool teenagers.

I also want to take the time to thank some very special friends, Dr. Bronwen Low from McGill University, Nathan Gage the music and 15 + entrepreunarial class, Mikaella Goldsmith, Community Developement Agent and specially Helen Stembelos, the art teachers.ye
