Gwen Tooth

Adult Instructor

Gwen Tooth received a Fine Arts Certificate from Humber College in the early 1970’s and, from 1978, studied part-time  at the Ontario College of Art and Design, completing her Diploma in Interdisciplinary Studies in 1995 and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2005.

Gwen has studied many disciplines with great teachers of painting, printmaking, book arts and textile arts.  She credits Graham Coughtry for encouraging her to paint what she feels in her own style which is a blend of expressionism and Fauvism.  She researches art schools for innovative instructors across Canada and the U.S. to expand her repertoire for painting and for teaching art. Gwen teaches classes in collage, approaches to expressive abstraction (acrylics), and contemporary expressive drawing.
