Arts Educator
Nicole Bauberger
Over the past 20 years I've taught countless art and arts
related workshops, from encaustic workshops, to
Painting level 2 at Algoma University College, to 10 foot
tall puppet workshops, to creative writing and poetry,
and so on. I'm an adaptable and resourceful teacher
who's committed to supporting the artist in the students I
work with.

I think in some ways that you can't really teach art, but
you can certainly as a teacher create situations to
support an artist's learning. I think there's a lot to be said
for the teaching that can happen just by working side by
side.

I love to teach workshops as a way of amplifying the
impact of an art show I'm bringing to a community.

My
100 Dresses painting projects include an opportunity
for the public to paint alongside me and even take part in
the show.

I've undertaken major mural projects with schools, using
glazing techniques in acrylics, building colour up in
layers and learning about it that way. You can see murals
like this, which I've undertaken collaboratively with
students, on Whitehorse Elementary school, in the  
Dawson City Public Library, outside Johnson's
Elementary in Watson Lake, YT, and in the Chief Zzeh
Gittlit School in Old Crow, YT, for example.
