Artist Connection

Cathy Weaver Elementary School Workshop artwork

Artist Connection is an education outreach program where by community artists teach about their practice through a travelling exhibition, visiting local schools and teaching workshops to grade school children. The exhibition focuses on quality works of art, representative of the Hamilton Arts Community, travelling through the HWDSB’s and the HWCDSB’s Elementary and Secondary schools.

Since 2012, I have participated in numerous Artist Connection workshops, visiting schools and teaching students about printmaking processes. From kindergarten to grade 8, printmaking, especially silkscreen printing  has fascinated young artists and given them the opportunity to try something new in the classroom.
