Terrena has a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and her Fine Art diploma from Grant MacEwan, and has been working with the AGA as an art educator since the fall of 2015. She finds it inspiring to work in a place that is constantly immersed in creativity. Inside the AGA, she teaches with the strong belief of embracing curiousity and taking chances. She believes that is important for students to not be afraid of what they don’t know. For Terrena, introducing young people to the many things art offers is incredibly important, and seeing the artwork that emerges from her time in the studio with students is not only rewarding, but one of her favourite parts about the AGA.
Hailing from Mexico City and with experience in Tourism and Management, Martha is currently pursuing a degree in Arts and Cultural Management at MacEwan University. With a long-term goal of working in museums, she joined the AGA Education team as a Spanish Bilingual Educator in October 2018. Martha is thrilled to deliver programming in her native language and enjoys sharing new knowledge, perspectives and insights into her culture while assisting students further their language skills. Martha is dedicated to creating a fun and creative experience for all students that visit the AGA. Come by and meet her!
