Ameen Dhillon graduated from the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. in 1989. Her paintings, drawings and prints have been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the USA, Canada, India and China. She returned to Emily Carr as an artist in residence as well as a lithography instructor.
After 20 creative years she is excited to open up her studio and sharing her passion for art with children.
"A favorite quote of mine by Paul Klee states: art does not reproduce the visible; rather, it makes visible. One of my goals is to encourage kids to slow down and carefully observe their surroundings, to look deeply and really understand what makes this world so beautiful and interesting. I encourage my students to use their imaginations as well as the subjects in front of them. To notice all the different shades of green in the garden and blue in the sky. To discover the elements of line and shape through the use of a wide variety of professional materials."
