Students at Gardenview Elementary were guided by Artist Deidre Potash in designing meaningful personal crests.   Each crest incorporates designs, symbols and pictures of things that are meaningful to the students’ sense of self and community.

Deidre has been an educator of the Fine Arts for over thirty years, teaching drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and design.  Her goal is to help students look, think critically, and discover through manipulating materials and trying out techniques.

Gardenview Elementary School’s ArtistsInspire Grant experience was made possible by an ELAN Quebec/LEARN partnership for students from Quebec’s English-speaking communities to participate in arts and culture experiences, thanks in part to funding from the Government of Canada.
