About the Instructors:

Jesse Roode is a self taught Visionary Artist from Truro/Wagobagitik, Nova Scotia. At the age of two she picked up a pen and intuitively scribbled abstract figures. Growing up in a rural community, Jesse spent a lot of her time daydreaming, exploring the forest, and drawing. Art remained a practice throughout her life. Focusing on themes surrounding mental health, the environment, relationships and memories. Drawing symbolically rich manga narratives and painting dreamscapes with mixed mediums. 

Now residing in Halifax/K’jipuktuk, Jesse works as a Substitute Teacher for the HRSB and Arts Facilitator at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. Jesse earned a Bachelor of Arts from Saint Mary’s University and Education from Mount Saint Vincent University. Because every student is an agent of their own learning, Jesse incorporates active imagination to her method, encouraging individuals to reclaim their power to (re)connect deeper to their unique and creative selves.
Camila Salcedo is an interdisciplinary artist with a primary focus on performance, video, textiles, and curation, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Interdisciplinary from NSCAD University 2018. Her work is centred around Latinx identity, cultural hybridity and llamativo colours. She is also an arts educator and community organizer.
