Biographical Info After many years as an elementary teacher and art educator, I am now providing classes and workshops for children and adults to help them discover the transformative power of expressing themselves through art. As an elementary teacher I acquired my Visual Art Specialist Qualifications though York University, Toronto. I also acquired certification in the Expressive Arts from the Haliburton School for the Arts. I have presented workshops for teachers across Ontario in partnership with the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario. I decided not to ‘retire’ from teaching but to ‘refire’ and to gently remind everyone that ‘Creativity Matters!’ I look forward to many creative adventures in my community and beyond. I hope you will join me on my journey.
What Services Christine Bretherick Offers? Art Education has always been my passion. I have enjoyed teaching art for many years and love everything about the creative process. My workshops and classes are designed for adults who would like to try something new, or for those who wish to simply rekindle the pleasure of creating art. Painting parties in public places have shown that there is a great need for social art. Whether it's painting, collage, doodling or colouring, creating art together is a wonderful way to express oneself while having fun or building community.
