Sue Contini - Childrens and Monthly Instructor

I LOVE teaching art classes at Swinton's! Like a lot of you, I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I was lucky to attend an arts-focussed high school and went from there York University, where I completed an Honours degree in Fine Arts specializing in Visual Arts and Art History.

I am a practicing artist and juggle painting time with raising my own four kids. My paintings are mostly oil and acrylic these days; colourful and energetic, and cover a wide realm of subject matter. I both show and sell my work and am working hard to amass a collection large enough for a solo show soon.

I have been teaching art for over 20 years. (Yes...I am ageless - like my students!!) Painting is both a passion and a mission for me, a way to communicate energy and environment through the continual growth process that art-making is. I hope that each student I work with will progress at his or her own pace while learning and experimenting on projects that they are passionate about as well!
