About the presenter

Monique has been an art teacher for eighteen years. She uses a wide variety of mediums and teaches that art can create change. Her student work often focuses on environmental and social awareness.

Monique funds her large-scale projects with private and corporate donations and grants. The students created public educational graphic design projects using bus ads.  She called the projects “Captive Audience Learning”, displayed in Saskatoon, Ottawa, and from Toronto to Montreal. They created two educational poster projects with the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Saskatchewan in French, English, Cree and Dene.  Monique’s students have created installation art projects provincially and nationally. Student murals adorn walls at Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House and the University Hospital. Her student projects are planned years in advance so that she can find funding.

Monique received the Governor General's Award for Excellence in Teaching Canadian History in 2007 and the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2009. Monique is a two-time winner of a National Teaching Award for combining art into other subject areas. In 2011 she received Canadian Society for Education Through Art Affiliate Award.

Monique is an accomplished artist exhibiting her artwork locally, nationally and internationally.
