“My two most reluctant readers/writers were engaged and enthusiastic about this project.”
—H. Valder, École Rivière Rouge, 2019 project with Karin Adams
“[The students] are having outrageous fun while engaging in valuable learning experiences in dram, performance, personal expression, creativity, literature, visual arts and theatre… The benefits to the students are undeniable and almost immeasurable.”
—Steve Smith, Centennial School, 2016 project with Carrie Costello
“As students put it, the most rewarding part of working with Joan was the way she connected art to their life. It wasn’t just art for art’s sake – for the sake of something beautiful – but rather an attempt to get students to observe and think about their life, their environment and their culture.”
—Kathy Waldner, Decker Colony School, 2018-2019 project with Joan Trott
