Susan McCallum

Artist in the School

Susan's latest illustrated Yukon book is "Big Moose, Big Moose What Do You See?" written in Han and English by Erika Scheffen, co-ordinated by Kyrie Nagano. Susan has also illustrated "My Stories are my Wealth", told by the late Angela Sydney and more currently, Tlingit stories presented by Children of the Taku. Susan believes it is very important for each student to be acknowledged for their creative work and often organizes a school wide art show to celebrate the students' original paintings at the conclusion of her residency. Occasionally Susan will invite her daughter Jenoah Esquiro, a beginner Tlingit Speaker to share in Tlingit drumming, singing and dancing encouraging the students to participate and share in her Tlingit Culture. Susan has been creating art programs for schools throughout BC and Yukon for many years. Teachers join in just as the students do, some teachers have called it a painting spa! Susan loves sharing her positive energy with her students and believes in creative self-expression.
