Diane Moran is a visual artist committed to projects that educate about everyday issues through art. Over the years, Diane has been involved in both international and local projects with schools and communities. She studied art at Emily Carr and Langara. She has exhibited in galleries and events as both a solo artist and in group shows. Mixed media, painting, photography, local history, conservation and environmental awareness are common themes. Artist residencies, workshops and one-off projects with curriculum links are areas of focus. A hands-on collaborative approach to projects with the art completed by the students focusing on curricular links throughout the process is encouraged.
Diane's talent, skill with process and her ability to bring out the best in students were outstanding. Her rapport with teachers, seniors and students is excellent. Janey Talbot, Community Coordinator
