Samples of my work
She has been teaching pre-school classes, Pro-D day camps and Art & Drama camps since 2000 at the Port Moody Art Centre. Gayle encourages all children with all levels of experience to participate in her camps. These camps are designed for children to learn to problem solve, and to improve their social and language skills while having fun and building friendships. To Gayle, teaching Art & Drama is more than teaching kids how to act, but also how to play respectfully together, encourage each other and be kind to one another
