My name is Barbara La Pointe and I am a passionate art education specialist.
I am known for my progressive and innovative studio work with children and teens.
I believe that the subconscious mind is the most powerful entry point
to the creation of authentic ideas for any artist.
In addition to teaching art and facilitating creativity, I am also an experienced gallery owner,
curator and practicing artist in mixed media and encaustic painting.
A little bit more about me....
• I am a parent of three children with unique learning differences and
know first-hand the impact art has on development.
• I am proudly Metis and work with our local indigenous communities
to acknowledge, learn and share their rich history.
