  • TORONTO DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD (1992-2006, 2014)- Journey Into Peace: A Bullying Prevention Program Through Visual Arts is a six lesson empathy development/social responsibility program. Through the experience of viewing fine art and making art expressions, students are given the opportunity to explore and process key bullying prevention concepts. Expressive arts are a widely accessible means of language and culture-neutral communication and learning for students, and are therefore recommended as an Toronto School of Theology covereffective and highly equitable approach for learning. Additional workshops and courses for students, teachers and consultants have featured setting up a Visual Arts Studio, paper sculpture, cartooning, drawing and painting techniques. Knowlton-Dority has been involved in many projects including a Millennium Mural, the design and creation of a Bubble Curtain, and a series of murals featuring active healthy lifestyle in a setting of great food, which support the Eat Smart! initiatives of Toronto Public Health and the school community.
