Ontario Arts Foundation Artist Educator Award
The Ontario Arts Foundation Artist Educator Award is given to an Ontario resident who exemplifies excellence in arts education, demonstrates a unique approach to their arts education practice, creates meaningful learning experiences for young people, inspires connections to the arts beyond the classroom and continues to maintain an active arts practice. The Ontario Arts Foundation established and manages the endowment that funds the Artist Educator Award.
