Summer Camp has started at Station Gallery and our two camps, Art Adventurers and Youth Camp, have been so much fun so far. This year at camp we have a great team of counsellors who are passionate, eager to teach and learn, and all about having fun. Meet our counsellors below:
Howdy hey, I’m Lucy! I absolutely love working at SG! After being a camp counsellor last year, I am so excited to be a lead counselor this year. It is so rewarding to see kids become inspired by art like I am. I’m currently in school for Art History, Studio Art, and a Minor in Dance at Western University. Art and dance make me super happy and I’m so glad to share my passions with other people at SG! I always hope I can brighten someone’s day and put a smile on their face!
Hi! My name is Kate. I’m just entering my final year of my Fine Art degree from Queen’s University. I’m doing a thesis with my paintings exploring themes of animal care and the lack of education about animal care. I am in the Concurrent Education program, and have done three placements- one of which was at Oshawa’s The Livingroom Community Art Studio. I am primarily an oil painter, but I also dabble in photography, print making and digital art. Making art is such an important part of life! This summer I am so excited to be a lead here as I get to assist all of our young artists make lots of projects.
Hey, I’m Georgia! I just graduated from the Early Childhood Studies program at Ryerson University this spring, so obviously I adore working with kids! Each year, we were able to do an internship working with children, and for my senior year I chose to come to Station Gallery to teach the K-6 school programming! I’m back as a summer camp counsellor and couldn’t be more excited to keep sharing my lifelong passion for teaching and art. In my own spare time I love to draw, paint, write, crochet, sing, take photos, play guitar and do yoga. I’m so excited to make amazing art projects with the super-talented campers at Station Gallery this summer!
Hi, my name is Rashi! Currently I am in my second year at Trent University, taking psychology and I am a graduate of an Arts Fundamentals program. In my spare time I read comics, draw and workout. Making art and participating in anything art-related is my passion. Working at Station Gallery as a counsellor this year is going to be an amazing time!
Hi, my name is Ely! I will be entering my third year at Ryerson University for Architectural Science where I am able to combine my passions for science and visual art. It will be my third year in a row being a counsellor here at Station Gallery and it remains the highlight of my summer! It was the first job I ever had and I continue to return every year. I enjoy seeing the happiness on a kid’s face when they complete their projects as well as the supportive community from the other counsellors! Working here has always complimented my educational goals by teaching collaboration, hard work and passion.
Yo! My name is Chinenye (Chee-nen-ya) but I go by Chi Chi. I’m starting grade 12 this September at Dunbarton High School in Pickering. This is my first year working as a camp counsellor at Station Gallery, but I used to volunteer as an assistant camp counsellor for the City of Pickering. I love all things art and enjoy meeting and collaborating with new people. I’m excited for this summer and can’t wait to make some great memories!
Hayo! My name’s Gabriel. I just graduated from J Clarke Richardson and I’ll be attending OCAD University to study Graphic Design come this September. In my spare time I like to ride my bike on the boardwalk, hang out with friends and exercise! I’ve had a passion for art for as long as I can remember, which led me to study design in high school. I started working with kids in 2016 with Dr. Jay’s Grief Centre which is an organization which assists children through the loss of a loved one. Since then, I have started teaching art class at Station Gallery. This is my third year at Station Gallery summer camp and can’t wait to see what it has in store!
Hey there! My name is Tessa. I am about to start my grade 12 year at ACVI! I have a passion for working with kids and it is my hope that I will become a teacher after university. I had the opportunity to peer tutor a grade 9 English class and I absolutely loved it! When I heard about this job I was very excited because it combined two of my passions: working with kids and art. Although I love art, I admit I am no Picasso. I am working every day to better my skills. I am thrilled to be working with all of our young artists in developing their skills.
We’ll see you at summer camp! SG summer camp is running all summer for ages 6-15. You can register for camp here.
