"Thank you so much for our week long residency - everyone is still talking about it and all our students are so proud of the tipi! I really appreciated all the work you put into the organization of the residency prior to the actual week - having everything organized like it was sure did help with the overall flow of the project. We absolutely loved working with you and I hope our paths will cross again soon.
~ Jennifer, Assistant Principle, Sifton School
Karen's instruction of the Woodland Aboriginal symbols was excellent and insightful. Expectations for what students needed to include was clear and achievable while allowing for personal creativity. I would like to book again next year.
~ Sandra, Division 2 Teacher, Richard Secord School
"Meghan's program was exceptional. All of my students were able to create prints that looked amazing! The program runs very smoothly and everybody stays engaged the whole time. I would definitely recommend this to my colleagues."
~ Joshua, Division Two Teacher, Grovenor School
We loved the process the students went through to prep them for their project: the Smartboard presentation and the examples given.
The students really enjoyed the process - there were many ooohhs and aaahhhs when Karen separated the plate from the print! Students are very proud of their products and can't wait to give them to their moms. We'd like to book you for next year! Karen, I appreciated your warmth and positiveness with my students! You made them feel safe and allowed their creative genius to shine through.
~ Karen, Division 1 Teacher, St. Mary Elementary
"Meghan's step by step instruction with visual support using the smart board, made the project very easy to complete for my Kindergarten class. All my students were actively engaged throughout the entire project and felt like real artists! I will definitely have Meghan come back again."
~ Terry, Division One Teacher, Lauderdale School
"Thank you for coming in. The kids really enjoyed having you here. You did an amazing job in working with my students. For an older special needs group you did a great job in how you spoke to them and explained/demonstrated everything to them. Thanks again for everything."
~ Navjeet, High School Teacher, Sturgeon Composite High School
“I had the pleasure of hosting Meghan Cooper in my grade 1 classroom last Spring. Meghan was prepared, evidenced in the organized manner in which she carried out the lesson. She provided all
materials and made me aware ahead of time the items in my classroom that would be required (ie-Smartboard/computer, pencils, table space, etc.). Meghan's communication skills with both myself and the students were excellent. She was positive and encouraging toward the students that struggle with fine motor representation; she supported diversity and risk-taking within the context of following the directions for the project.
I highly recommend Meghan and her company," Imagination Academy", as an in-house field trip presenter; particularly for those teachers wanting to provide extensive art instruction from another, more experienced source. Thank-you, Meghan!”
~ Sue, Division One Teacher, Lorelei School
