  • 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 effective and highly equitable approach for learning. See Journey Into Peace webpages here » [TDSB link »]
    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.
