Leah Dennis - Artistic Approach Studio, ECE

Leah Dennis

Having graduated from Early Childhood Education in 2014, I have enjoyed working with children from infants to 12 years of age. Mostly working in daycare settings as well before and after school programs I have always enjoyed how creative the mind is and love seeing imagination come to life.

My artistic passions include knitting, crocheting, and sewing as well as appreciating the finer arts.

I am also very eco-obsessed and will always find a way to reuse or recycle and skip the non-reusable options.

Janet Harpley-Aco - Artistic Approach Studio, Fine Artist

Janet Harpley-Aco

I have always been artistic; from a young age being exposed to creative and talented people, and putting those experiences into practice while developing my own passion for fine art. I graduated from Georgian College's Fine Arts program in 2007, and have been constantly honing my craft since; from painting, drawing, and murals - to tattoos, and sculpture, it is my true passion.

I am excited to share my experience, and love of fine art with Georgina.

I enjoy working in all mediums and forms of art, and focus mostly on paintings, prints, found materials and drawings. My belief is that the constant bombardment of contemporary media is indelibly permanent and it is this daily observation of non-stop images that put a voice to my creative expression in my work.
